Description

Get ready for some variety!

Slab climbing leads to the first difficult move, an 11c mantle problem to gain the ledge above the first big roof. Rest well and then launch into the overhung crux slopefest. Actually, there are some good jugs on this section, although the sequence is a little devious. Route finding on a sport route, who would have thought! Finish by going straight up the final smooth bulge (11b), or wimp out and escape to the right, although the hard part is over.

This is a great route with lots of cool moves!

Protection

The first pitch is short, 3 bolts up to a belay on big ledge. Better yet, skip this by walking up the ledge from the left side to the belay. The upper pitch is 12 bolts and two bolt anchor. There is a 4 bolt 3rd pitch, 5.5 s.
