Description 

If you enjoy 5.10 gear lines, this is the route for you. Samsara climbs a steep crack which grows from fingers, thin hands, hands, fists, and finally off-fists. The starting hand crack is protected by a couple bolts, which leads to the crux off-fingers crack in the overhanging wall. The final crux is in the fist sized finish to the anchors. A few key face holds keeps this at the 5.10 level. (barely)

A must do trad line!!!


Location

If you are clipping the bolts on the lower crack you will only need one #2. The extra #4 was nice.
