This route follows the highest quality rock at the crag.

The route is marked by a series of delicate moves for the feet and positive crimps for the hands. Super fun!!

After having spent a dozen or so days at this crag during the past 6 months, my appreciation for this route has increased significantly. I have actually grown to regard this route as the best at the crag. The rock is good and the technical, sequential climbing has remained interesting even after the n-th ascent.
