This is almost an amazingly awesome route, as the corner climbing at the start (bolted crack with mostly face-climbing moves) is super fun. The climbing on the upper section is a little contrived. Like George says, its really close to the 11a just left of it (you can reach all the holds if desired). The intended finish, I presume heads to a hard to see little micro pocket up right, you need to reach blind to make the move over the bulge-arete. With that said, it was fun, safe, and worth doing.

You can skip the crux section on the arete by moving to the shallow dihedral to the left (Cracula) for a couple of bolts. I'd say this bumps it down to 5.12- or maybe 5.11+.

The bottom sequence of this climb is badass. Mar 21, 2009
