Great big, positive holds for most of this climb. There is kind of a cruxy move at the bulge near the top. Find some good jugs, rest up, then go straight up.

Don't let the 10d rating intimidate you. If you are a 10a climber, you'll still really like this climb. All the bolts are easy to clip, they are well spaced, and it is rewarding to turn that bulge. Apr 29, 2013

fun jug haul that's just overhung and pumpy. Not technically difficult, just overhung and sustained. Super fun and a must if you're on Escape Buttress. Nov 20, 2012

I don't believe any moves felt harder than 10c, but due to the sustained nature 10d feels about right. The route is more overhung than it looks, and the pockets aren't always obvious. This one is all about endurance. May 25, 2009
