Description

Ultra-crimpy. This is the 2nd route from the left that begins up a slight ramp using a sidepull feature (see photos below). At the top of the ramp, the climbing gets thin and hard. The crux is powerful on small holds and bad feet. The 4th bolt is nearly impossible to clip were it's at, so I pre-hung a long draw (I heard Lee skipped it). After the crux, fun climbing leads to a huge rest (the route would be so much harder if it wasn't there, I kind of wish it wasn't). After the rest (skip a bolt in there), the top has a great 5.12 finishing sequence on sidepulls and crimps, with a "thank god" jug to clip the anchors.

Protection

Lots of bolts, 10 I think. Closed cold shut anchors.
