Description

This is a burly 10a in my opinion. My climbing partner kept repeating "There is no way this is 10a" all the way up while following. On first glance, it appears that the route is essentially over once you pull through the overhanging section 25' off the ground. To my surprise, I found the rest of the route to be pretty sustained all-in-all.

Begin just left of Colorado Crack. An overhanging section lies 25' off the deck. Above here, the flared crack is somewhat difficult to protect. The last 15' or so before topping out is wide and awkward.

Anchor: slung block.

To descend, scramble off to the north (climber's right) as for Colorado Crack. This involves a move or two of downclimbing.

Protection

TCUs to 3" cams (double set).
