Start in a shallow dihedral and climb through a crux at about mid-route and finish on jugs to the top. The climbing is somewhat sustained throughout.


After hiking the trail to the North Forty for a little while, one comes to a brightly colored, undercut and overhanging face. This climb is to the left of the undercut/cave and starts in a shallow dihedral.


Nine bolts to a two bolt anchor.

also did it on gear. top section (crux) is a little run out, but nothing scary if you climb harder than 5.8

Since it was described as 'the best 5.8 on the planet...' we had to do it. It was fun and a good warmup - would recommend climbing it.
