A couple long moves on good holds to a short, hard crux right before the anchor and the top of the cliff.


At the right end of Waimea. It's the route to the right of Rhythm X.

This isn't first-hand, but rather from watching two buddies projecting it. The holds are incut, the movements are long and bouldery, and the crux crimp is super-sharp.

A bit of history from Dave Graham - he thought it was really hard... maybe 5.12b when he first did it. Just goes to show that his crew got way strong way fast.

V9ish bolter problem. Tricky beta makes the difference.
