Description [Suggest Change]

This sport crack/face has it's crux at the start. The thin crack opens periodically for finger jambs. At the sixth bolt with the gray hanger, you may opt to go left to a lie-backing flake where large cams are needed, or go straight up to bolt and difficult face climbing. Both options lead to the same anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route, in the "Upper Jungle," is characterized by a smooth, red band of rock at the base where a thin crack leads to two close-to-the-ground bolts. It is just right of "Climbers in the Mist."

Protection [Suggest Change]

Quick draws and a couple of medium to large cams to shunts.

Difficult boulder problem start (harder than 11a, but not crazy) followed by 5.9 and 5.10 moves, I think. Fun climb.

The majority of the route is 10a/b and has some really fun moves. Do not dispair with the hard start. Using a cheater stone you can clip the first bolt with a runner, then step in and clip the second bolt. This keeps you safe and able to reach the rest of the climb. Oct 11, 2010
Awesome start with beautiful movement, but definitely harder than 11a. The rest of the climb is athletic with some great moves. Very fun. Jul 21, 2011

5.11a A0 or 5.11d. That crux is V3/V4 and doesn't favor tall people.
The rest of the route is fun and a bit funky (odd hand jams), the start and the proximity to the trad line on the left just didn't do it for me. Jul 2, 2012
