DescriptionFun consistent route with just about everything you can ask for: jams, crimps, pinches, laybacks, underclings. Rest where you can on this thing. Crack skills, especially foot jams and layback, help to tame this steep route. The whole route is the crux, but the hardest move comes near the top when moving on laybacks to an interesting pinch/undercling.
Belay spot is fairly lame, the scramble to the base is a little annoying. The fixed chain for the belayer help.
Clipping the first bolt is easy but missing it could spell disaster.
