A climb with ascending difficulty and increasingly thin and sparse protection for the first 70 feet, culminating in a hard and technical crux well above small gear. While the odds of injury for a competent leader of this are not high, the excitement factor will be. The first four climbers up this without falls each solved the crux in different ways depending on height, balance, and edging ability.
The large party listed for the FA is related to the history of the line, which was first seen and TR'd by Steve Levin in the '80s or '90s. In 2008, when it had still not been freed, Jason Haas and Tony Bubb went back not knowing of its history and cleaned it for a lead on the following week. This was by chance mentioned to Steve, who proposed to share the FA. All involved met as a single FA party. By a draw of straws, Steve led the route on the first attempt of the day, with Jason, Tony, and Brent all also climbing it cleanly thereafter.
