This is an hidden classic! The first bolt is 30ft off the deck, but you can fiddle a medium hex at 20ft. Follow fun patina plate climbing to a crux roof. You get cool exposure as you climb patina edges along a leaning arete.

If you have gear, it is neither 'R' nor PG. Jun 20, 2016

The climbing is pretty straightforward to the high first bolt. If you are comfortable with heights and a confident climber, it should not be a problem. If concerned, there are plenty of places low to plug some gear. Jul 23, 2012

Hex? Bomber .75 or #1 halfway up to the first bolt in patina cracks.
Unless you like cowbells. Steep for 10a and quite exposed, great line. The edges on top are the biggest yet skinniest patina I've yarded on at the City. Sep 26, 2011
