Excellent warm up route. A little pumpy at the top as it kicks back. Very well protected.

VERY true that it kicks back. I know because I made it through the 9 bolts, then, due to bad footing and an under-developed clipping technique, it literally kicked me off at least 15ft. Wear a helmet if your not super-confident w/ leading.
