[Hide Comment] This route was quite dirty and overgrown, not that great of a lead due to lichen and the loose choss after the step, be sure to redirect the rope to protect your belayer. We also top roped the corner to right between this route and "Hanging With Hornets", this is a fun route that goes at 5.7-5.8. Begin with stemming problem through a short (3-4 ft) crack then through a fun slab (great climbing for 20 ft). Not well protected through slab for a lead. Jun 28, 2020
