Description 

A 5.9 in the book, with some tough 5.10+ moves, makes this a . . . well, you decide. Sustained and burly.

Climb one of two cracks to a sizeable overhang. Muscle through this and follow a crack a short way to a small cave (optional belay). From the cave, move left and climb past bulges to the top.


Location 

Starts at a semi-detached flake around the corner left of One-Ten. Rap from the anchors.


Protection 

Small to medium gear. Bolted anchors.

really fun climb; 3 stars for sure; good gear and the cruxes arent as hard as they look; a must do

Very steep for the grade, but overall a mellow route with stances below each hard section, could be harder if you dont find the 5.9 way through the crux.

Definitely no 10 plus moves, and there are 2 ledges you can actually sleep on, so I definitely would not put this one in the burly category
