Description

Climb through an initial cliff band past two bolts to a ledge. Clip the third bolt and climb past the deeply undercut overhang to the face above. Climb the beautiful plaque of rock via edges, sidepulls and technical footwork. A final set of thin moves at the last bolt leads to easy climbing to the anchor.

Location

This is the first route from the right on the main wall.

Protection

10 bolts.

This route now has its own anchor, below the usually dirty ledges at the top. Jul 18, 2011

This route is cool, but it is substantially harder than the 10d next to it! The move leading to the last bolt threw me off 5X before I could finally stick the high crimp. What a rush! Oct 10, 2014

I agree. If one avoids using that sketchy flake, the move feels much harder than 10b. All that aside, it's a decent route. Mar 10, 2015
