Description [Suggest Change]

Slightly overhanging sustained face climbing with a sequential crux. Get ready to crimp on this one.

Location [Suggest Change]

On the narrow west end of the Pinhead Wall. Starts off a broken block and climbs the face left of the first weakness you come to after coming around to the west face.

Second best route at the crag. Crimpy but not sharp. Mar 19, 2012

Really fun. The crimps are surprisingly friendly on the skin for how small they are. The business is definitely the first half. There is a hands free rest midway followed by more engaging, though easier, climbing on the arete. Mar 6, 2018
