Wow! This climb is steep and continuous, on small edges, pockets, and positive features. The rock is amazingly featured and ascends a steep orange face with yellow lichen. Well protected, but needs more traffic to remove loose bits.

Harder than the other 10a's on this face. Crux at top is steep and involves handholds which are either sharp or thin.

Wow, Tony, you sure nailed the beta on "Doggie Style." A bit stiff for the grade, steep, sharp, and thin.
