Description Suggest change

This route is Good. Begin 8 feet right of Evil. This route is also route #4 in the overview photo.

The route climbs on excellent quality rock on large edges that all slope down, making the route feel insecure and pumpy. If these edges were flat or incut the route would be 5.8. A few tricky moves over small roofs lead to a somewhat contrived left-wards traverse to the last bolt (which is shared with Evil). Finish atop the column at a 2-bolt chain anchor.

These routes stay shady until ~3pm (DST).
