This short route revolves around a powerful sequence into, and out of, an oblong pocket.
Try to conserve energy through the awkward and semi-difficult moves low. You will want to feel fresh coming into the crux. . .
After sticking the crux throw, make a difficult clip and crank up onto the ledges using solid holds. Simple, but unprotected climbing will take your through the last 15 feet to the anchor.

[Hide Comment] Definitely a bit of a hidden gem at the northern point. The moves are harder but much more fun than those of Torrid Zone!! Jun 7, 2012
