Jen on Sick Vulture


Climb the corner and face left of Squeeze Play.

A harder variation (5.10a) starts out on the face and only uses the corner higher up - not too contrived.


None until it is too late.

This is a fun heady lead. No pro until the first horizontal at 18 feet, then two small cams in brittle rock get you through the next 10ft of face to the 2nd horizontal where bomber pro exists.
