Description [Suggest Change]

This route is a bit more powerful than Tribal War, though probably not as sustained. There is a distinct crux around the 3rd or 4th bolt. There are two ways to do this crux, one involving long reaches between good holds, and the other involving shorter moves between small crimps.

The real difficulty here is keeping it together through the final moves. Though not super difficult, this upper headwall is very devious. There are a lot of options once you hit the grey stone at the top of the wall, with holds to the left, right, and straight up. The finishing jug is a real heart breaker. Do your best not to fall while clipping the chains!
