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.

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
