Dylan checks out the cool little chimney crux on C...


A slopey start leads to an offwidth-style crux - an unusual move.


This is just right of Check Your Head and Check Your Six.


8 bolts to chains.

The off-width crux is surly the crux. I can not wait to try this route again. It is fun for The Palace.

One of the best for the grade at the palace. The off-width crux is spicy! But there are several no-hands rests along the way and the climbing is thoughtful with interesting moves.

The off-width at the top is definitely interesting. Probably not hard for those used to that style of climbing, but it was definitely nerve wracking for me. This is overall a really great route, one of the better 5.9s in the area, and definitely a great warm-up.
