Description [Suggest Change]

This route follows the corner between Emerald Epitaph and Problem Child. One tough move off the deck places you on an easy ramp that brings you to the top out, a hand sized crack that goes over the bulge. This route felt easier than 5.8 to me (5.6 maybe).

Protection [Suggest Change]

Although you could get by finding small placements, a few medium to large cams will protect the route well. Set up a TR with a few large cams in the crack on the rim.
