Description 

The start is a reach for those under six feet tall. Then it goes up crimps, sidepulls, and gastons to good holds at the top out. Many use a pad-stack for the start.

Pads.

Let's just call this bitch, Dirty Business. In my experience, many of the locals have used this name for it. Anyway, whether you call it Tropic of Aids or Cancer or Capricorn (I have heard 'em all), this problem is how do you say, The Shit!

Bad news. The starting flake busted off on Saturday, 10/10/15.
The flake is sitting at the base of the climb.
