Description

Good mixed route with sustained climbing and great exposure. Don't forget to look down as you throw the crux move over 150 feet of air. The belay is a little tricky- set it at the lip and have the second climb past it and set one higher to back clean. This will avoid BAD rope drag. Walk off.

Location

On over-hanging wall above and to the right of the Hanging Garden

Protection

Bolt, cam, bolt, cam, natural belay

Short but brutal route. I give it 12a/b since it has one definitive crux in the middle and a crazy pump factor. 60 degrees overhung? We didn't setup a belay at the lip and the leader just went to the tree. Rope drage was fine. I would say that if your second isn't compitent at steep 5.12b than belaying your second at the lip would be a VERY GOOD idea. Sep 12, 2013
