In the steeps


Good crimping will move you up and right past two bolts. Clip the bolt in the overhang and fire up, passing a hidden fixed pin to reach the pumpy finish. Rap from the tree at the top. Excellent and pumpy climbing.


Begins right of Zydygo at a low bolt.

Great route!
After doing it several times over the years, I feel the consensus could be closer to 5.11c.
Also underneath the bulge, a perfect #2 Camolot can be placed before entering the bulge and clipping the bolt on the face.
