Great sidepull, delicate ballancy moves going through the crux with bomber hidden jugs over the roof to pull yourself to glory!


5 bolts to anchors

Difficult climbing between second and third bolt. Moving right and using key pockets makes it flow easier.

I found going past the third bolt the crux; obvious RH side-pull enables one to move up to a left hand bucket pocket.

I did this route again but with a complete different sequence than previously. Again between the 2nd and 3rd bolt but more direct line using side pulls, high right foot and crossing over with my left hand to a high but very positive pocket in a slot. Just as the business was over and I was pulling the short and ultra-positive roof I popped and now sport a nice little rope burn directly behind my knee. Damn it!

I like this route because it keeps you thinking.
