Although the climb is very short, the moves are fun, unusual, and well-protected. Really grainy now but should clean up nice with traffic.

Very grainy... didn't see anything unusual about the moves, but it is well protected

Revisited this climb, 7 years after the first ascent. The graininess is long gone so I'd bump it up to two stars. Fun slapping up a blunt, slabby arete. The hangers are designed for threading a rappel rope directly through the hangers (but not for toproping or lowering).
