Description 

A sustained fun climb on super solid white rock.

Climb up the easier terrain to the high first bolt. Continue up to the overhang where the business starts. Crimp hard and work to a jug and some easier moves to follow. Catch a much needed rest on the ledge and fire the last few moves on the increasingly slopier holds to a balancy finish.


Location 

In between Masuko and Nonameyet.


Protection 

6 bolts and anchor.

The thin and technical crux hits early, followed by easier 11- climbing to the anchors. The last two bolts are pretty far apart by Summersville/Whipporwill standards on delicate 5.10 terrain, but with a clean fall. All in all, this is a very nice climb.
