DescriptionThis route should be considered fairly serious, there are many loose blocks and marginal fixed gear.
Pitch one: This pitch is the money pitch and by far the best pitch on the route. climb a flake feature into the sustained hand crack that leads to a one bolt and slung chock stone anchor.
Pitch two: This pitch rallies up some some fingery layback, remember to reach right for some compression moves. Be VERY careful of the huge loose block on the top of this. It ends on a nice ledge.
Pitch three: 5.9 A1 or 5.11 (FFA Hoyt and Trocki) sustained 5.9 climbing leads to the top.
Descend via a walk off to the right.
