Nate on Blade

Description 

One of the best problems in the Valley. An aesthetically beautiful line on perfect holds. Climbed back in 2001 by Nate Woods, this problem just saw its first repeat almost 10 years later.

Throw for a good undercling/edge from an iron cross SDS. Work your way onto the big lightning bolt shaped diagonal sloping rail and follow a series of sloping humps and depressions. A tricky move at the end of the big rail will set you up with hands matched on a thin rail. Head straight up the face on thin holds to the sloping highball mantle shelf.
