Another good 5.10 in the lower gorge...
This one has nice variety and pleasant moves.
Start by clipping a bolt and making a tricky move to get situated in the stem box. Work up through more moderate climbing to a stemming crux at the top.

Cranking move past the bolt.... but a small alien goes in right when you need it. Expect a sting-in-the-tail reaching the anchors! Although it is mostly small pro, there is a nice place for a #2 Camalot.

Seems to have 2 distinct cruxes as mentioned - getting past the bolt at the bottom & getting the anchors (2 moves at top). The bird shit has been cleaning up nicely over the past year.

Great climb. Fell at the top just below the anchors, it gets kind of weird up there.
