Starts from the Lion's Head. Climb some easy stuff to a high first bolt. Continue up the bolt line through a couple of sustained moves. Take advantage of a good rest near the second to last bolt and finish up on the final 10c crux to the anchors.


Sport. 10ish draws

Climbing the right side of the pillar towards the first bolt seems to be the easiest way! Mar 29, 2018
