A very techincal route with small crimps and an akward ramp near the top. Mantal the start and move easily up to the wall. The climbing is balancy but not hard until the wall gets steep and the holds become very thin. The crux for me was working through the crimps and up into the ramp above. I didn't really figure it out and didn't get the send, not so sure that that bothers me all that much though.


Pretty much right in the middle of the crag. There is a big corner on the left with a bombay chimney (Keel Hauled/Saint Elmo's Fire.) The route is the second bolt line to the right of that corner corner, starting at a short steep wall below the ledge.


8 bolts to Lower off.

FA 6/97 - Paul R. Wonsavage, D.D.S., F.A.G.D (aka - Paulie or "Dr. Paul"), depending on circumstances and the state of his hair. By the way, he is an extremely good dentist.
