DescriptionThe climb is a borderline 2* climb at present, after we cleaned lots of saucer and plate sized flakes of rock from the crack. The climb is nicer now that it was yesterday, we are sure. With a little more effort in ridding the line of junk rock, the climb will be more pleasant.
While the climb is best remembered for the top dihedral, a quality section perhaps only 1/3 of the length, the crux lies more probably in the initial leaning crack, on a step-right move, just a few moved below the dihedral. This section is only protected so well and is not bomber overhead gear. As such, the route is NOT appropriate for people pushing their limits on 5.8.
