One of my favorites at the pond. Everything from bg dynamic moves on large jugs to thin face climbing on great edges and pockets. Definitely a thought provoking line which provides the best view at The Pond. I don't think a cam is necessary near the top. There is a bit of a runout but the fall is clean and if you completed the rest of the climb you should have no problems at this section. Definitely recommended

Fun route for sure! Hard down low and more relaxing up top. K-Tanz was right though it will keep you guessing trying to find the holds. If you stay away from the stuff out left and follow the bolts directly this goes at 11a. If you go out left 10+.
