Description Suggest change

Climb the steep and sequential overhanging pockets to a series of big powerful moves between jugs and pretty good holds... the crux is a huge undercling move that links two big huecos across a blank face... The moves above there are still big and hard but not as bad, so long as you can keep your cool and not get pumped...

I was able to get a little rest in the form or an OK horizontal knee bar and a jug before the crux move... with a knee pad and the right size leg it could be a really good rest indeed...

I found this to be a super fun route that rivals the more popular Ro Shampo across the street at Road Side Crag... they are both full quality but if you don't dig the crowds maybe this is your 5.12a... This one might be harder for those without a long reach...
