Description 

This brilliant problem starts up the steep north face using side pulls and underclings. The crux is reached when a couple small crimps allow access to a good sloping sidepull out left.

Pull around this onto the slab and up to the top.


Location 

Located on the northeast overhanging face.


Protection 

pads

Why is there a bolt on top?

A hold broke on this about a month ago....The left hand next to the right hand, triangle pinch is now much worse....

I never climbed this problem before, but hear it is a tad harder now.

I did this after the hold broke off, and I thought it was more like a V5. Super cool climb though!

The topout on this one is unforgettable. The sit start adds maybe a grade and is a worthy tick as well.
