DescriptionThis route has it all: heinous crimps, friction slopers, crack climbing, stemming skills, a roof, dynamic movement, etc. If it were longer it would be an uber-classic!
Begin climbing the obvious crack to the huecos and a small bulge. Next head up right through the dihedral to a large roof, traverse right, and then finish up the great dihedral.
- Note- It is possible to avoid the true crux on this route by going left at the crack up to the huge hueco and continue up through a series of better holds, eventually traversing right at the roof. This drops the rating a few letter grades.
LocationHead right as you face the cliff past the obvious offwidth corner. This line is the fourth to the right and starts in the obvious vertical hand crack.
