This seems like the type of climb that someone gets on to try and impress the group of newbies they brought out to the crag. Check me out as I muscle through a few overhanging moves in a man-tank. In case you are wondering, the climbing is very similar to its neighbor Xenophobe.
The start is a steep and juggy boulder climb that is over quickly and leads to junky slab climbing. Go ahead and give it a ride if you are in the area. Why not. It just shouldn't be your first pick if other climbs are open in the area.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
