Start up the slightly overhanging, right-facing corner that is mostly fingers and tight hands. Move around the corner to the left and up an offset crack in the face to a thin finish. Good fun!

Protection

.2-#2 Camalot. Heavy on .4-#1. Mostly .75 C4's. A few shoulder slings.

[Hide Comment] I would say 2x Purple C3 and a single Green and Red C3 protect the thin sections at the top. Heart breaking finish on sweet crimps! Apr 21, 2014

[Hide Comment] Not sure where Luke was getting the C3s in, but we needed brass micronuts to protect the top. Exhilarating finish! Nov 16, 2015

[Hide Comment] 70m rope required for this route. I recommend #0 C3-#2. Extra .5-#1 C4's. Heavy on .75 camalots and a few shoulder slings. Have fun! Nov 5, 2018
