line is up the center


Crux: After doing the dynamic move to the jug rail, there is a tree growing on the right side of this ledge. Heel hook right and reach up to a bad crimp with your right hand (although I have seen it done with the left). Slowly lock off and reach a decent set of crimps 15ft up. The crux is over, but the commitment is not.

New beta has been found that uses a mono after doing the first big move eliminating the original sequence described above. Hence, the downgrade.


Center Line on the north face.


4 pads or so, spotters.
