Description Suggest change

This climbs up the right side of the obvious overhang in the middle of the wall. It stays consistent most of the way. It starts with a wide crack that thins out to some face climbing (crux).

It then works the arete a bit and back into the crack just right of the overhang. The crack above the overhang is a blast, as is the face finish.

The crux is very delicate and is protected with brass, so be careful. However, IMO, it was not runout like the book claims.

Location Suggest change

Just right of Equipment Overhang Left.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack, heavy on the small stuff. I used one brass and 2 small aliens, and a WC Zero. Chains at the top.
