Topped out on Sympathy.
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Intense. The first piece of gear is small but solid. Once you build the confidence to lead past it, many aggressive moves up thin hands and slippery feet lead you through a good undercling up a thinning finger crack.


Location 

Starts from the ledge above Empathy.


Protection 

Very small to 1", 1 bolt. Aliens useful. Rap anchor.

The first move (well, first protected move) is thought provoking and for me, the physical crux. The rest is trying to balance and slot gear but a bolt precedes the really little C3 placements.
