Hard start if you're under about 6 foot tall- there seems to be a foothold missing. I fell off. Good gear though, and a nice finish.

Well named - a vicious start and a snarly finish! Excellent gear worth VS, 5a in my book but perhaps I was having an off day due to beer gremlins?

Led right up to the last move, but pumped out, couldn't find the hold over the top so came down. Happy though, this is a bit above my grade but worth the effort. Enjoyed the second, should be able to lead the next time.
