The second bolt line from the left, Torn Flesh is another stellar climb. The crimps are very sharp, hence the name, but provide very positive holds. Start a bit left of the first bolt. There is a sweet lesser crux right off the ground, utilizing a beautiful crimp and tiny feet that you just have to trust. Moving right and gaining the good flake allows one to clip the first bolt. The crux comes while passing the second bolt but there are several sweet .10a moves that follow. All in all a nice sequence of careful balance movement on thin edges. The stance for the anchor is fairly sketchy, but not too crazy. Another must do! Rappel to descend.
4 bolts, bolted anchor
Lluis enjoying that crimpy start.

Thin edging up crisp edges before the 1st bolt is the crux after which it's fairly moderate but interesting climbing. Rated 5.10c in the guidebook but it feels easier than the 5.10b just to the left.

Crimpy. The whole way up. The crux is definitely getting off the ground and before the first bolt.

Past the first bolt the route is steep and balancy, a fun route and a tad intense.

Short but interesting and fun.
