Start on the two obvious jugs under the arete, heelhook and reach a bad left hand sloper. Crux is a deadpoint for the lip.


On the corner between dirt and puppy love.

I did this one in '05. I was scared that I'd fall from the top, land on my pad and slide right down into the water. Good stuff.

When you first try the crux, it does seem like you could slide into the river after a fall, but after taking multiple falls I can assure you that the landing is totally safe.
