Sustained thin and technical climbing punctuated by powerful, large moves off of less than desirable footholds. Considered solid for the grade.


Bolts. Fixed draws on all bolts besides the first as of 4/26/08. (Don't steal 'em!)

Good route, very fun and technical. Helps to know some beta, but never a gimmie. Worth seeking out! All clips are fairly easy to make and the bolting is very safe.

I recommend making sure your hair is perfectly coiffed. You got to look good to climb good on this one.
