Description Suggest change

Charybdis is a fine route located about 15 feet east of the giant boulder at the base of Coronary. The route starts out on challenging holds and remains challenging all the way up. Follow the small slanting crack up and right, though you may not use the crack much during your ascent as it is very thin. There is a slight overhang near the top, but the holds are large and copious. I thought the route was very reachy, but with a few runs on it I'm sure the sequences could be honed to make it more graceful. This is a fun, challenging 5.7 which, due to its continuous difficulty, could be considered harder than many 5.7's at the Lake.

Small nuts on your rack, big nuts to get the nerve to lead this thing.
