DescriptionA very unique sport climb. A mix of sidepulls and underclings with some technical and sequency moves thrown in. You would normally expect to find moves like this while traversing under a roof on a trad climb.
Start up a blunt arete on easy ground past the first bolt to the second bolt. Now take a deep breath and figure out where your going. From here continue left past three bolts trying to stay fresh as each moves is harder than the last. The last clip on the traverse is quite difficult but the previous clip isn't far away.
Next pull the crux moves straight up over the bulge, grab a jug clip the sixth bolt and head to the anchors.
Now the next crux is cleaning the route. Proficient use of a stick clip is nice to get the first draw, or just boulder up to get it. Beware of the swing back into the wall behind.
