Description [Edit]

Another great moderate at the pond cave. Start on a jug in the back of the cave just left of the pond cave traverse crack. Make your way up and left along the lip with heel hooks and some cool incut sidepulls under the lip. Top out when you reach the high point.

Location [Edit]

Just left of the pond cave crack, traverses the lip left.

Protection [Edit]

Pads, multiple are helpful because of a large boulder under the landing.

This gets V3? It felt so much harder than that, especially with the somewhat committing topout. Maybe I was just having a weak day... Feb 25, 2018
