DescriptionStart from a two finger pin scar and a flared three finger tips sidepull with horrible, glassy feet and crank a looong reach to a better jam; once past the crux the climbing eases to about 5.9 in difficulty. Although listed as a toprope in various guidebooks, it could easily be led or even soloed as the difficulties are past once you're about 15' off the ground.
Orignally an aid climb using pins (one of the reasons it goes free) it still provides fun, clean aid practice if so desired.
The two bolts on top are located a ways down the face and require some exposed (but easy) friction to access.
