A great pitch with fun jamming above. Just pull the crux down low and start jamming.

Gear to 2.5 inches. Extra 1.75 - 2.5. Bolted anchor to the right between Snatch Power and Jaw Bone.

Wires work well on the intial fingery section, that requires more pulling than you expect. Bulge is on bomber hand jams but still feels awkward. Top is cruising on #1 camalot size splitter, so save at least one piece that size for the upper half. Jan 18, 2010

Tough first 10 feet, but the rest is amazing. I thought the roof was super straight forward; both hands and feet are on perfect golden cam sized jams! Apr 23, 2017

Laser. Cut. Granite. The last 10-15 feet are orgasmically clean laser splitter. #1 camalot Feb 12, 2018
