Aptly named, be prepared to do some serious tape-up for this route. I found myself doing hand stacks, ring jams, and fist jams on this bad boy. Burly!

Did this with #2-#4, definitely wish I would have seen the advice about bringing a #6. Not too bad with the #4 though, as you can protect just below the slab, and run it out till the bolts.

Load up on the #3s to #5s for the top section. Really great climb with all kinds of crack techniques

Don't miss out if you only have cams to BD #3, its a bit run out at the top but its easier slab with plenty of friction options. Great climb. Rap anchors at the top.

This is solid 5.9 OW, so if you're not a > fist crack ninja, bring a #5 and #6 camelot for your sanity. Yes, the slab mellows it up a bit, but you've got chicken wings when you try to step out onto it. Don't let the first few solid hand jams fool you. Burly, but great!
