Approach flared vertical crack and follow up to roof. Continue, finding least resistence out right, or, opt for more exciting moves straight through roof.

My climbing partner used a #2 cam between the 3rd and 4th bolts. Mar 14, 2010

I climbed this last fall and really enjoyed the route. I didn't end up placing any gear but really liked the feel and the movement. The traverse under the small overhang and then climbing out it was the best part. I did throw off a few small pieces of rock that were on the ledge. Feb 2, 2011

Agree with the others about the quality of this one. Didn't think it needed gear anywhere. Definitely one of the better moderates at Ozone and as good as Carrots for Everyone in my opinion. No move eclipses 5.9, however, and there are plenty of rests... Jul 1, 2011
overall great climbing, especially when the rest of the crag is sopping wet! i threw a #3 in the hand crack at the small runout in order to avoid hitting the deck. But in retrospect i think it was a bit of wasted energy, as the climbing to the next bolt is all solid (although there are 1-2 loose rocks in the hand crack). The crux move around the overhang felt sort of stout for a 5.10a, especially when comparing this route to others of the grade at ozone. But it could just have been my less then ideal beta and slightly damp hold up top. Aug 26, 2013
This route is awesome!! i TR'd it this afternoon. Arms get pumped out real quick, for me anyway, but there is a great spot for a nice Dyno! about 7-8 ft. have fun with it! Oct 24, 2014
