Straightforward climbing up the opening dihedral eventually leads into classic gorge thin crack climbing and stemming. The crux kicks in moving past a horizontal on the right wall (good gear here) to a bolt on the left.


Immediately left of Rim Job.


Gear to 3" (Fingers and smaller for the business)

There is now a bolt at the upper crux, there is a tricky lieback sequence just below it, but practically all the moves on gear are 5.10 or easier. Pretty rad route with a great stemming crux, it protects well and should be done more, TRing from rimjob or Gruff is quite easy.
