DescriptionRough Around the Edges is a clever pitch which packs a lot of moderate climbing into its 5.11 grade.
Starts in the middle of the amphitheater, and is the first line to the left of the black section of the cliff. Start right of squatty pillar, working your way up to a lone bolt, below a short finger crack with black rock on the right. A 5.9+ move leads you to the break.
From the break move up right into low angle dihedral, and a 5.8 hand crack. This dihedral will eventually get steep while the crack tightens down, and the difficulties begin. Boulder past 3 bolts on positive edges, and sweet pockets, one of which is a sinker mono at the final hard moves.
