[Hide Comment] After a little scrubbing each summer, this route is worth the try.

BETA Warning*****Stay to the right of the corner and look for small feet on the face.

Super strenuous and balancy. Bring stiff shoes! I would not use this as an intro climb into the 11's at index.

You can top rope the route by climbing one of the 5.8's to the left of it. Mar 25, 2013
