DescriptionThis is a frustrating 5.8, and that is because the first 8 feet are balancy 5.10! An excellent route to sandbag beginner climbers on, which I found out on my first day of climbing as I never really got off the ground.
This is the bolt line closest to Hornets Nest on Critical View. Stand up on a large blocky foothold, which is much harder and more delicate than it looks. A few more thin moves get you to the second bolt, and then cruiser 5.8 to the top.
