DescriptionAnother steep route with a difficult start. The crux may be getting to the first bolt. Thin holds and side pulls with little to no feet start this route. First three bolts are the technical crux. After third bolt you get a rest and it eases up a bit and you get some great jugs. Last part of the climb goes steep into the left side of the big flake at the top.
This route is a little stiffer than the .11a just to the right. It felt more sustained and the start is definitely harder. Still a fun route with a lot of good climbing on it.
This route doesn't see a lot of traffic so there is still some loose stuff on it that will most likely come off.
