Description

Same start as Peer Pressure but climb the left arching corner and crack.

Allow me to add to this description.
Originally an aid climb, It was later free climbed on gear and given the grade of 5.11d. It has been retro bolted and the grade has been upped to 5.12a in the latest guide book. If I were voting it might be the hardest 5.12a on the hill with only a couple of contenders. Moral of the story, old school dudes with trad racks are always tougher than the rest of us.

The climb is steep with some real trickery and some straight up hard pulling forearm pumping fun. Though it follows a crack system it is not a crack climb. There are two cruxes for me, One is mostly awkward the other is a difficult hold up toward the top of the climb.

Notes:
A little sharp in places.
Not the cleanest route.
Often wet.
Do not disturb plant life, RARE FERN ALERT!
Shares anchor with Kundalini.

Cheers, Lee

Protection

All bolts. Don't clip the pins, which have been left in place as relics of another time.
