Straightforward climbing down low brings you to a tricky finishing sequence on much smaller crimps.

You can wimp out and finish right in the crack it seems or stay left in the natural line. If you stay left of the bolts, on the crimps, I don't think there's any way that this goes at 10a though. A one move wonder, and not a great one at that.

fairly typical of Vantage, if not incut jugs, then balancy crimpy. This one is height dependent, if you are tall it is still hard at the top, but you will be through it quicker. I think this is one of the better short 10a sport routes.
