radddogg 4 Aug, 2015 Lead dog Very polished so there are some tough moves on the slab. Also difficult to protect. After the bull horns are the holds are slopers, high friction but slopers. Then the final pull through the overlap is steep and on slopers. Total sandbag. I had a mini epic and had to sidestep to edge of slab to relieve pump before continuing. Good but hard for the grade. Logged as a dog due to the sidestep but no falls or rests on the rope.
