DescriptionThis route climbs an awesomely aesthetic line direct up the south face on some extremely unique features. It's a real power piece - there are few rests on this short but tough little fella! The real climbing begins on the large pedestal, and any way you get to that point is fine. Staying left of the bolts, climb direct through the huecos and crystals to the summit. This route is short, wild, exposed, aesthetic, and fun!
Do not bail left onto the west face up the easy crystal trough at the 4th bolt - continue direct up the face!
