DescriptionAn abosolute must do! A 5.10a meant to keep 5.10 climbers honest. This is one of the best damn climbs at this grade, but has a hard-ass roof pull crux that would make Ghandi want to punch a nun in the face.
However, with that said, once you throw yourself against this climb enough and work out the beta you will fall in love it and want to do it over and over again every time you climb. Routes graded 5.10- should not be give-aways that any douche can crawl up and this is a route that reaffirms this grade and gives a much needed challenge.
Get on this thing! You will love it! It has everything a 5.10 should have! Big pockets! Bomber holds! The crux is a wild roof pull to even harder terain and the route finishes up on slab that will have you praying for the anchors. This climb is harder and more rewarding than just about any 5.10a I've climbed anywhere else in the country.
Get on it and learn to work for that red point!
