A crimpy climb that starts out with an easy lay back on a crack and then hits the crux half way. The rest of the climb is then cruxy. A challenging climb. It is located just to the left of Lloyd's Lament and you use the corner of the column at the base of Lloyd's Lament for the start.

An awesome route, probably my favorite so far at the park. Very sustained for the guidebook rating of 10b. The physical crux is the intimidating sequence of steep, crimpy holds immediately above the starting column, although some technical footwork and the shortage of rests keeps the remainder of the climb exciting.

This is a great route, at first it seemed to be much more difficult than the guidebooks 5.10b rating but once you figure out the correct sequence of moves (especially footwork) I think the 10b rating is close to accurate.
There is a loose hold about 3/4 of the way up that will break off at some point that will deffinately impact the difficulty rating of this route. I don't think it is a safety hazard for the climber but deffinately could be for the belayer as well as bystanders if the climber were to pull it off.

there is protection on this climb: at the base of the roof (behind the pillar), in the in-cut holds after the roof, and in the massive horizontal about 3/4 the way up. probably PG13 rating. not bad idea to suss out pro on TR before leading. pro: purple TCU to #1 camalot and micro to medium nuts

This is one of my favorite routes at the park. The footwork is fairly technical for a 10b, but once it is figured out, the grade will seem reasonable.
