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.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
