Description

This sweet little gem climbs perfect rock up the slightly overhanging red patina face. Begin at the diagonal crack (Nematode) with a gear placement (or stick clip the first bolt) and perform some cruxy moves to a good stance. Continue up steep rock and crimpy, but positive, holds to a bolted anchor. A yellow Alien in a horizontal alleviates one of the run outs between bolts.

Protection

Draws and a few TCU's.

I thought it was "great" but not "classic!". The start is less than inspiring and the climb is over too soon. Jun 12, 2017

A blue metolius/green alien fits at the first horizontal, a yellow metolius/yellow alien at the second. That's assuming you stick clip the first bolt. This is THE BEST pitch I've climbed at the city. Jun 25, 2015

Felt very sustained/hard for the grade. Just about every move felt 5.11. 3 widely spaced bolts in true city of rocks fashion. Hardest 11b I've experienced. Jun 12, 2014
