Climbs the obvious right leaning crack feature up the center of the wall. Stick-clip the first bolt.It's probably obvious by now, but the beginning is hard. Climb up to two pinches and get ready to throw! If you're lucky enough to stick the big throw, hang on through the tough 2nd clip and 5.12 pocket section and you'll get a decent rest. Then, great climbing on good but pumpy holds leads you to one last little crux. Try your best not to fall there, because then you would have to stick that throw again. This route has only had two ascents.


8 bolts, open cold shuts anchor

This route can be frustrating but is truly worth the effort. The pinches are like grabbing two 2x4's. The first few times I tried I could barely pull into the move, let alone throw. Before long I was hitting the throw consistently. Just stick with it, nailing the throw is definitely worth it, amazing movement on rad features.
