Description 

Another of the classics at this cliff. The holds are good but open handed, except for a distinct crux section above the large ledge in the middle of the route. You will likely be pumped regardless of your ability. For leaders, one piece of fixed gear protects the crux where gear is minimal and a fall onto a large ledge is possible. A RURP use to exist in the crux but due to age (rusty) the wire was snipped and the gear was replaced with a fixed anchor.


Location 

Large left facing dihedral on upper half of the route. Left of the middle of the cliff.


Protection 

SS ring top anchors
