A super classic high slab, satisfying and exciting. Tricky and technical climbing down low on small edges leads to easier, but committing moves on good holds to the top. Superb!


On the north (uphill) face of 'The Hunk', this line starts low and right and trends up and somewhat left, following a clear and aesthetic line.


Some pads and a spot to keep you out of the bushes should things go awry.

The crux down low felt harder than a V2, but up high the climbing gets a lot easier, which is especially nice given the height (fun highball!!!!).
