Get the crux over early on this long, varied pitch, and enjoy the rest.


This [was] the leftmost route on the southeast-facing, Palace Pages Wall.

Worth climbing. Best part about the route is the length. Be careful if this is your limit, the route seems to be runout in places.

If you don't like runouts, stay off this one.

This might be a bit runout, but it seems like the runouts were intentional to get you to good clipping stances. It feels like you can generally expect a runout to end with a great ledge or jug.
