Description

The middle route on this beautiful wall. My favorite climb on this wall; very aesthetically pleasing moves, balancy, thin.

Location

Start underneath the obvious small right-facing corner, pull past small roof (crux), and diagonal up and right (second crux) to finish in dihedral. Easy walk-off, or bolts on top of Dunce's Corner.

[Hide Comment] A very nice climb and relatively easy to protect with small cams and ball nuts. The first crux is protected by 0.4 C4 on the left side. X4 (I think it was the yellow) and a Camp ball nut (I think it was the #3) protected the higher balancy moves above the crux. All placements can be done from relatively comfortable stances and felt more like G. May 14, 2018
