Description

This climb begins on a decent left hand crimp and a good right hand sidepull. Cross left hand, bad right hand, bump to the "potato chip" hold. Shuffle feet, left hand up to a bad intermediate pinch and bump to a nice incut jug/crimp. Match. Left hand up to a decent sidepulling crimp right foot up. Toss to a decent sidepull--the top of it is a jug. Stay cool on the topout or move slightly left on jugs.

Crux is moving to the nice incut jug/crimp.

Two stars for good holds and nice movement. Loses stars for the back-dab-slab landing and the potential chasm you could fall into near the top of the climb.

There is a V8/9 that traverses in from the left about four holds. 1.5 stars for this version.

Location
