There is another 5.11 sport climb to the right of this route (near the left edge of the chimney). I don't know what it is called, but it's got some fun moves on thin face with good rests in between. Jul 19, 2010

Don't hesitate to try the Coven/ Fu(Seriously Fu) Manchu extension, no I'm serious. From the Coven anchor, climb left on good holds and feet to what would be the second to the last bolt of the new route "Fu Manchu". Clip this with a extended draw, make a little mantel move, clip the last bolt and crank over the little roof(10c?) to the Fu Manchu anchor. Lower off with a 70m. Watch the end. Aug 7, 2015

And remember, it is pronounced COE-ven, not CUV-en. Seriously.... Aug 8, 2015

Tightly bolted and fun, no stand out difficult moves so a good one to push it on. I found myself traversing back and forth to find the path of least resistance which made for really fun route finding! Dec 31, 2017
