[Hide Comment] A small piece of rock for your toe has broken off of this climb making it a bit harder in my opinion. Took a little bit of working to figure out good beta for someone my height. If you're over 6 feet the start could be a fun challenge. Feb 21, 2013

[Hide Comment] Really tricky start. Climb to the ledge and clip the first bolt. Best of luck after that! Crux is from the starting ledge to the ledge above the first bolt. Feb 20, 2014
