This is such a fun line but can be very humbling the first time on it. I found it to be very beta intensive. Unique sequence for a 5.8. Enjoy!

totally humbling! I've been pushing into the 5.11's out in Arizona and got shut down my first attempt through the notch. I was trying to muscle right through the middle. Next time around I breezed it..but still, humbling. And lots of fun. Enjoy those super sketchy "bolts" under the notch. Equalize and place a good cam at the bottom of the notch.
