A stopper start that needs some luck to find the correct sequence. The remainder is delightful, assuming you find the good holds at the top.

A thin start to reach the second bolt and difficult pull to finish. A delightful route.
Alan James - 03/Apr/00

The start can be a stopper if you don't get the sequence right. The remainder is delightful climbing to the roof, where the finishing pull is indeed difficult.

Overated.

misunderstood

reality did indeed bite me on this one, one of the harder ( at least to work out ) 6b+'s at portland, top easy enough *when* the pocket is found.

Ferocious crimpy start, then pleasant varied climbing.
