Harder than it looks


This route starts about 100 feet across from and diagonal to "Young Lust." Start 10 feet left of a large chasm with a nolina at the chasm's base. An easy 10 foot boulder problem start to a nice right facing corner. Lieback and jam up the 15 foot corner to a sweet sustained finger and hand crack that eats gear and ends in a pod. A couple of interesting moves out of the pod that leads to easier climbing


1" to 3" gear for the climbing. A solid crack for the anchor at the top.

This route was kinda hard! It may have been the end of the day or the awful walk down at the end of this route, but I had this up there in difficulty with some of the .8+ to .9s in the area. A pretty good route, but don't go thinking that this will be the easy one to knock out real quick.
