Climber setting up for the first crux in the wanin...
Uber-classic crimp line up a vertical orange wall just right of Mango Tango. Scramble up to the big ledge 20 feet above the ground (belayer should belay here to keep climber from hitting this should they fall at the crux)and begin to get your crimp and pimp on for 2 bolts. Above this initial sequence lies the crux (V4-5ish) which involves locking down pretty hard on your right fingers. The climbing stays difficult and somewhat similar to the first crux for another bolt. After that the climbing mellows to the relatively manageable grade of 5.11c. Hard, reachy face climbing is the name of the game on this rig.
Just right of Mango Tango
