about to prove the hold is a "sucker"

Description 

A much tried and sometimes climbed route. The steep crack between Diedre and the gross gully that marks the North End area. Sustained and powerful. This route was one of the first "testpieces" of the '70's and remains so today, with the traditional grade of 5.11d. I think you may find it harder.

Location 

about 50' left of the gully, obvious crack

Protection 

Good gear , cams and some wires

one of the great NH 11+'s ! HA ! The "rest" hold before the crux is a sucka and pulls you out of position.
