The steady lower wall gains a difficult and bouldery finish.

Close to impossible when damp. Very similar to its left hand side neighbour (which has no stars)

Three stars? What for? This is basically a four move boulder problem on top of a 6a+/6b. The moves at the top are good, but the route is completely unbalanced. One star at most.

agree, how can this be 3 stars? A path to just below then the top, then a boulder problem on ver conditions dependant holds. Maybe 1 star, but probably not

Agree with all the comments, brittle 6c plus lower wall, then 15 feet of good moves, then desperate boulder problem to finish. Who bribed who to make it 3 stars?

Agreed John, escalating difficulties with a very hard finish when pumped. Where did the name of the route come from? - has it got something to do with the 5 move crux sequence! Anyway it will survive for another day as the beans kept running out in the crux so will need to work on the fitness for the return visit :-( 1 stars but worth seeking out...
