Good footwork will let you reach the holds that sloppier climbers won't see. Angles are kind of weird. This climb is the first you come to on the 5.2 slab that The Millstone climbs above.


2 bolts for anchors and 4 draws.

Very fun climb, positive holds and fun feet if you can move around. The slant kind of screws with your head, but just adds to the fun.

This is my least favorite climb at the Stone. Hardly worth the effort getting to it.

OK route...I thought it was sorta fun, but quite steep for the average 5.8 climber...felt like 5.8c...and the belay stance is quite awkward.
