|cool climb. best line at shanty ive been on. agree that the finger crack crux at the top is easier if u are tall, which i am. it climbs more like a 9+/10a for me i guess. nice finger locks too.|

The crux is a crap shoot; dyno for the right spot and it's in the bag, hit it wrong and you're whippin'. Beware that thin slot, it doesn't hold gear well. I've watched a long whipper with gear-phht along the way.
This route earns its classic rating more from the wonderful movement leading to the crux than for the crux itself, but that's icing on the cake.
