"Nothing, Honey".

Description 

Contrived climbing up right side of formation. Start with layback. Move across and up blank awkward section to generic Alabama Hills edge pulling. If the start of the climb were 6 feet to the left or right, the line would be more natural and 5.8.

Found this route to be very natural. Maybe a little awkward at the bottom but still fun. Nice hand jam leads you out of the awkwardness and some stemming out onto the face. Most agreeable climb on the rock, frankly.

atypical moves for Ahills. Thought it was a good, varied climb.

Also enjoyed this route. Crux for us came after stepping onto the face and working right around the corner to gain the headwall. Fun lead.

Really enjoyed this climb. Nice dihedral with crack and steming to face climbing. Moving from steming to face climbing was the crux for me. Very fun climb.
