Fantastic climbing on this route.

One of the best pitches I've ever climbed. just amazing movement and very sustained. 5 out of 4 stars.
the gear is bomber, and just where you need it.

Agreed with Monty. REALLY fun route! Red and grey Aliens (or similar) might be nice before the first bolt. Amazing how this rock eats up finger pieces and nuts on killer sporty climbing!

I see people are going right of the bolt on this climb.... I went left and thought it was at least .11+ if not .12- (compared to other routes at T-Ridge). Pretty desperate moves off of an undercling and terrible side-pull to a bad side-pull to slopers.
BETA: a BD 0.75 and 0.5 protect the moves to the bolt nicely. I was able to climb up real fast in tennis shoes, place the 0.75 in a bomber placement and then jump back down.

I found this thing to be much harder than it looks. The gear was not as plug and go as it looks either, kinda the typical Thunder rounded flare in the back, but maybe I just suck at plugging gear. Good climb, sustained, turns out its a little tough warmup.
