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.
