From the top of the first pitch of zoom step right and follow bolts to the top of the wall, 12 or 13 clips. The crux is a single face move but there are also three unique mantels along the way. A 60 may or may not get you down, a 70 definitely will.


above and right of zoom.

If you can climb ZOOM, which you have if you are at the base of "Hairway", you should continue up "Hairway". 12 bolts and 34 meters of manteling fun.

There is one move that if you are under 5'10", you might as well clip the bolt and pull the draw onto the rail. I'm 5'10" and I can just barely reach the rail. It doesn't change the difficulty other than one A0 move.

I'd give it 2.75 stars. It would get more but the first 30 feet tend to be dirty. Not so dirty that you shouldn't climb it.
