Description 

Burly. Start is hard to protect and very strenuous. Be ready to tweak your tips. The slot above is devious. The finish near the top is run out and heady. I backed off and escaped to the right. The climbing is fun but the lack of pro near the top is puzzling to me. You decide.


Location 

Towards the right side of the wall. I think the third crack from the right. It's neighbor to the right has a lone bolt.


Protection 

Standard Rack

The bottom seemed much harder than 5.10. I would avoid the direct finish unless you're feeling extremely lucky; you're pulling hard moves way over gear. In addition, rock was sloughing off from start to finish...
