DescriptionThis sequential line is a classic Cochiti test-piece. Half the trouble is deciding which of the heavily chalked pockets visible from the ground are best left unused. The other half is keeping it together on the final, tricky slab move just below the anchors.
The technical crux is reaching the obvious S-shaped crack at midheight, where a great rest gives way to the sinister, slabby redpoint crux just above.
