Nuria Anguita-Bates on the scary upper slab crux.

Description 

Starts with 5.11- crimps and continues up to second bolt, then switches to 5.10+ big moves on drity jugs with bad feet until you get back into 5.11- laybacks on sharp crimps then in the rux section where you have to squeeze the juice out of a sloper with your left hand and stand up on your right foot (hip height) to gain a crimp that you can feel comfotable with. then pull up to no-hands rest and relax because you are about to pump out again on the slippery upper slab section(5.10+ 5.11-). Pull one especially reachy move on the slab to gain a better hold and clip the anchors from a decent ledge.


Location 

Second fully bolted sport climb west of access stairs, just left of Team Machine.


Protection 

6 Bolts to Anchors.
