Good face climb at a pretty sustained angle.


Starts just right of the the large overhang on Egyptian Airbus and just left of another 5.10 that starts on an undercut section.


5-6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Don't blow it at the top, good little fall if you do. The crux is clipping the chains.

Very true about the crux. My friend had the rope under his legs and slipped at the anchor resulting in him being flipped upside down. The upside is...he had his helmet on, which probably saved him from a nasty boo-boo, but yeah, look around the top before ascending to the anchors. I found some bomber holds on the right side leading up to the anchor and it was no problem clipping.

What a classic climb! Steep and sustained with various rest. This is an enduro burner for sure, you really need to pay attention to your rest opportunities and use them well. The pump comes quick, the crux is definitely getting settled to clip the chains.
