Description 

Some have said this should get an R rating, but if you trust in some shallow nuts in the lower half I would say PG. The physical crux is protected by 2 bomber pins, the topmost of which recently held a nice whipper. Pull onto the undercut wall and trend just slightly left to a #3 cam placement about 10-15 feet up. Continue up fantastic, steep, technical face moves through 2 pitons and the ultimate crux. Pull this and continue through a small amount of 5.7 to a bolted anchor.

Stellar face climbing on beautiful rock.

Location 

Nice yellow/orange wall, look for purple sling on a fixed pin mid-way up, near a second pin.

Protection 

Small rack, but a #3 is nice down low, and some nuts are useful on the first half. Ends at bolted anchors.

So those pins are still good, huh. That's cool, it's been quite a few years since I banged em in there. Sometimes I miss that Alabama sandstone.
