Sandrine Chiron, left foot on the big jug, ponders...


Good - with a way fun finish.

Start just left of center and gain a foothold on the only big jug at the start. The crux leads through the next section and now uses holds on the right also (as part of the Direct Route). Trend leftwards as soon as possible then up to the undercling and ledge. Finish up the lovely wall above using pockets and flat holds, a final stem leads to the finish.


Just left of center.

It seem more logical to stay a little left at the start now that an undercling has broken off. Still a great route though.

Chris, here's my onsight attempt. I'm fairly confident this is the route. Definitely a fun 10a. Everything after the mantle in the middle of the climb is 5.9
