Description 

A sweet gem located just to the left of the Wong Climb. Featuring zen-like face climbing with really nice moves, the climb stays interesting all the way to the well protected crux way up high.


Location 

Start at the base of the Wong climb clipping the bolt a few feet left of the crack. 1 rope will barely get you down to a ledge/crack system with scrambling, but 2 ropes is better.


Protection 

7 bolts, 1 fixed pin, and a small selection of cams and nuts.

I'd been eyeballing this climb for awhile. I've never seen anyone climb this route...which is surprising to me now that I've climbed it. A very, very nice route that I'll be repeating again and again. Highly recommended.
