Description 

A great, varied climb up cracks and jugs. Start at a crack below a roof. Climb up and through the roof with great hand jams. Good flakes lead up to a leftward traverse leading to the final crack. Very fun climbing on great rock.

Super fun and varied climbing make this a great warm-up for the harder lines here. Sustained for the grade but crack technique helps.

Fantastic climbing. The first few feet look a bit scrappy, but after that the climbing is superb.

Pumpy for .10a, a great line. I thought this was harder than Black Lassie, the .10d!

Great sustained climbing! A few hollow flakes near the top, but other than that it is 5 star 10a climbing!

Maybe it was the tiring six day backpack my girlfriend and I completed the day before but this thing had me pumped out of my mind! Incredible little climb though.

take advantage of the rest ledge after the starting crux.

This climb has been lead fully on gear. While not recommended it is a fun adventure of 10a r/x maybe?
