Description Suggest change

This route is in the popular 5.8 crack area of Rincon Wall. The route is the broken flake and crack system about a little ways right of 5.8 crack, and just right of the climb Outer Limbits and the huge tree at the cliff base.

This climb ascends a dark, broken flake and crack system with awkward moves and small, difficult, pumpy protection. To descend, rap from the anchor above 5.8 crack.

I waffled briefly about the 'bomb' rating. The route has some bad rock; it isn't terrible, it's just not worth it.

Protection Suggest change

There is some pro, but the rock is not great and the gear is pumpy to place. The gear is a few small [pieces] total. (tiny cams)

You can rig a TR from the tree above 5.8 crack with some swing potential -watch out for the huge tree below.
