AMAZING moves all the way up! Definitely teaches how to mantle small ledges.. Fell off on final move when pulling on a stupid wet hand hold - sad times. First time big whipper though, which was fun.

Certainly not as well protected as the guide might have you believe!
victim of mathematics - 2nd O/S - 18/Jun/10 with crossdressingrodney

Much of the gear felt less than reassuring, although the climbing is probably not that stiff for 5b.
