Lots of fun. Start in the dihedral and work through a bulge/roof. After 2'nd bolt, gain the big platform and take a break. Clip the 3'rd bolt and get ready for continues crimping to the top. Be careful going from the 4'th to the 5'th bolt. I have broken holds off before here, can be scary when that happens. Helmet for the belayer?

Pretty bad bolting job at the 3rd bolt, imo! Very cruxy getting up to it, very beta-intensive moves, with big consequences if you fall.

Also, this route felt harder than 10c to my friends and me. Sep 20, 2010

Agree that this is a hard .10c. It felt more .11ish to me but that probably had to do with deck potential as mentioned in the above post. Several holds I was on while clipping the first high bolt off the ledge flexed and were not confidence inspiring. Still a nice route but maybe should be cleaned up a bit before I would recommend the masses to partake in this climb. Nov 11, 2010
