DescriptionThis is a short warmup in the middle of the giant tower on the right side of the arena. The route is about 55 feet - it looks miniscule since it only goes a third of the way up the tower. A second pitch may be added in the future. Above the anchors, the wall goes quite blank - the potential second pitch here will be sick thin. The route starts off slightly overhanging on good rock with big holds.The first clip is a little spooky but reasonable - bring a stick clip if you want to avoid being scared.
3 or 4 bolts of nice 10a climbing lead to a reachy 10+ section that diagonals up and left, culiminating with some of the most incredible chickenhead grips I've ever pulled on.
From here, begin an 11a sequence (maybe a shade harder than most 11a moves) on small holds involving some high stepping and good footwork.
It is really fun - if it were only longer, I would have said 3 stars.
