What a tremendous route! This climb is not for the faint of heart 5.8+ lead climbers. The panoramic views once at top are worth the gray hairs. There is a 5.10 on the left side of this face which is better suited for a warm up before this 5.8.

The last moves up and around the last bolt feels 10b/c.
