This is the route that climbs the Black Overhang directly up on to the slab above via cracks and incut holds slightly right of center...

Climb up to the overhang and possision your self just below the crack at the lip of the overhang... Climb nice incuts (that might be reachy for smaller folks) to the lip where you can jam a good crack place some gear and do a sidepull move to gain the slab... From here climb the slab until you can join Standard route climb that to the top with a slightly direct variation at the top at about 5.7...

This route unlike most Rimmon routes doesnt feel like a sandbag... Maybe i did it wrong and all the good holds are "off route" haha...


Climb the black overhang slightly to the right on to the slab above... you will see the cracks...


regular rack will keep you safe...
