Description Suggest change

The second bolted line from the right. This is the one that works the roofs near the top. It starts thin and entails good edging and good mantling ability (as do half the routes on this wall). The 1st bolt is high and hard to get to unless you find a sidepull. Getting to the 3rd bolt involves possible ledge fall, hence the "s" rating. What makes this climb a classic in my book are a few things. 1) It is a route with enough length. 2) It is consistently 5.9, yes.. it eases up a bit here and there, but it isn't a 5.6 with a 5.9 move. 3) good rock 4) Varied climbing exists on this route. Juggy roofs, laybacking, sidepulls, thin edges, mantles, smears, friction holds, what else could you ask for. Oh!! **Point 4) An airy finish.** Now what more could you ask for.
