This is a really cool climb with interesting movement. I have only toproped it, but it would make for a really heady lead. After you climb the thin holds in the back left corner of a round bulge dihedral like feature, you have to change style and bust up the slightly over hanging face like the OP said, well above small gear. In my opinion this may deserve an R or at least an S. Feb 7, 2008

Solid PG13 due to some tricky moves, subtle gear, and the proximity to the ground. Nov 30, 2009

Took a nice gear ripper on this yesterday when I slapped for a nothing hold instead of a monster jug after the crux. Sep 30, 2011

Some idiot put a bolt at the crux on this thing. What a waste of a cool route. I don't have the tools, but hopefully someone can chop it. Feb 25, 2012
