Description

Starts right of Steel Your Face in the trees. This climb felt harder than Steel Your Face (10a), and was certainly more difficult to protect. Basically bad gear placements up a thin sandy seam, and of course, sandy slab climbing. Make sure to follow the easiest climbing about 2/3 of the way up (I got tunnel vision and tried to go straight to the next pin). Also, be careful of the crumbly flake near the top.

Gosh my review makes this climb sound fun, doesn't it?

Protection

Bring some cams to #2 camalot - small Splitter Cam would have been nice on this one - to supplement several drilled pitons.
