Description

Starts on some juggy holds, leads to a right-veering crack which leads to some more big holds to the top. Fun route with some moves that require a bit of problem-solving.

Location

This route shares a start with Fortress Fingers, but uses the crack and larger holds rather than the face. Once past the crack at the bottom, it's pretty direct to the top.

Protection

Top-rope from anchors. Small and medium gear if leading. Bolts for anchors.
Super fun route. This felt more like 5.6-5.7. Definitely not 5.8. Dec 22, 2015

fun route but i don't believe its fair to call it 5.8 probably 5.7- ish. I think the NC book gives it 5.6 rating Aug 28, 2012
