Burly crux.

Easy to build TR anchors if you don't have the gear (or the nuts) to lead it. Apr 14, 2007

Most will want a couple LARGE pieces (#5 Camalot and larger) or be prepared to run it out towards the top. With only one #5, I ended up backing off on lead and opted for the top-rope instead. Aug 23, 2007

This is one of the first routes I did in Yosemite, almost 10 years ago. I had major problems with the crux, and think I was crying by the time I finally got to the top of the climb! Jan 13, 2008

If you use the cheater flake inside, this is pretty light for the grade. Jun 3, 2011

found this pretty burly, TR'ing Five and Dime went much more smoothly... Jan 25, 2018
