The official crux is the mantel at the first bolt, but the thin moves passing the third bolt can be challenging.


Twenty feet to the right of The Verdict.


Bolts, some tcu's protect getting to the first bolt. It is also possible to clip a bolt to the right, but if you do this you need a long sling and the bolt becomes useless quickly.

As was said at the climb today: .10a? Maybe .10a++. hah.

Pretty heady! I'd suggest the leader wear a helmet.

SWEET belay ledge up top. Absolutely perfect. I have honestly never found a cooler little belay ledge.

No need to do a mantel at the first bolt unless you want to make it harder than 10a.
