A short route, like the rest of the wall, with a few fun, tricky moves. Climbs a short face to a large ledge then ascends the an overhanging corner. The second clip is a little tricky and you might want to have the belayer close to the wall once making the clip as the rope can nudge you off. Move right onto the ledge and then the fun part begins. The last move before the anchors is a little different and fun. Only one star because of the giant ledge half way up.


5 bolts, 2 chain anchor.

A bouldery start, then a pumpy overhanging desperate stemfest make this a very hard 11c.

One of those climbs where you think you are home free after a few spots of darned hard climbing (especially onsight), then BAM! You can't clip the anchors without some improbable and desperate move. There is nothing more cruel than having the a final crux right before you clip the anchor. Haha.... Oh well, whaddya gonna do?
