This route is soooo beautiful! The climb starts with an awkward overhanging chimney. After that you get a rest then it moves into beautiful thin hand jams up an overhanging wall. This route shouldn't feel as hard for people with thinner hands. Those with thicker hands may have trouble in the mid-section of the hand crack. I feel like I have normal sized hands and ended up getting about six real tight thumbs up jams in a row. The crack does widen up though so just keep cranken'. The last 15 feet is a tight squeeze chimmney that some people like myself end up liebacking. A classic 5.12 crack!
P.S this climb is featured in the extra scenes of the film "The Sharp End".
Rappel from the anchors below Separate Reality. The climb begins on a ledge with a tree.
.5 to #2
Bring a few extra .75 and 1 sized cams
