Description

Short and sequency, this tough 10 definitely has its cryptic moments. Fortunately, the crux is well protected by the third bolt.

Starting at an orange wall below a prominent roof, edqe your way up the face past three bolts to anchors below the roof.

Location

Near the left end of the Lower Leda cliff, just left of the corner crack climb Misunderstood.

Protection

Three bolts, bolted anchors.

Fun route, but could really use a bolt at or before the horizontal to make it a safe sport climb. As it is it's maybe 15ft runout and the clip to the bolt above the horizontal is the crux so it's lacking protection at the most critical part of the climb. Using a #1-2 cam in the horizontal makes it feel much safer. Sep 11, 2017

Second hangar is a spinner but the bolt still seems solid from light inspection. Used a text book yellow C4 #2 to back it up in a horizontal a few feet after it.

Stellar climb and was the only dry route nearby on this rainy morning.

Probably one of my favorite routes to date. Would repeat. Feb 19, 2017

One of my favorites at LL. It's all there for the taking but I had to red point it due to the funky sequence moving left over the bulge to the small horn before the third bolt. I'm rating it a 5.10b IMO. Apr 27, 2016
