Reaching for the razor!


Start sitting down and right of the Y-crack at the base of the seam. Traverse left past the crack (crack and holds are off) staying low and finishing up and left on the obvious and sharp razor hold. #10 on the beta photo.


pads, watch rocks at base.

The razor hold is not very sharp. It may have been at one point, but I think years of hard brushing have rounded the edges of it.

Calling the large block off and using the sloper holds in the crack and the sharp seam that is beyond the block is way fun and more holds are on. ( Prolly makes it v6/5 )
