A great, varied climb up cracks and jugs. Start at a crack below a roof. Climb up and through the roof with great hand jams. Good flakes lead up to a leftward traverse leading to the final crack. Very fun climbing on great rock.


9 bolts to mussy hooks


After the initial overhang, it's dead vertical to the top. Remarkable that no single move is harder than 10a.
But it keeps coming at you.
Would be even better if it required more variety of techniques. Aug 10, 2014

This climb has been lead fully on gear. While not recommended it is a fun adventure of 10a r/x maybe? Jul 8, 2014

Maybe it was the tiring six day backpack my girlfriend and I completed the day before but this thing had me pumped out of my mind! Incredible little climb though. Sep 3, 2011
Great sustained climbing! A few hollow flakes near the top, but other than that it is 5 star 10a climbing! Sep 29, 2010

Pumpy for .10a, a great line. I thought this was harder than Black Lassie, the .10d! Aug 21, 2008

Fantastic climbing. The first few feet look a bit scrappy, but after that the climbing is superb. Jul 31, 2008

Super fun and varied climbing make this a great warm-up for the harder lines here. Sustained for the grade but crack technique helps. Jan 24, 2007
