It maybe short lived but what a climb! Took two visits and three attempts along with some hairy falls. Superb climbing that is very pumpy and makes your forearms feel like they are on fire... I found it better to run out the fist section of big moves to the break. Trend right up the break then protect the lower and upper break. Then make a quick dash left up the upper break to the crux. A lay back to a direct finish. However an alternative exists if out move out of the crux and left! Nov 16, 2008
