Description

Sit down start and move through a couple sharp but deep, secure pockets. The short crux comes at the top, where some long reaches to somewhat hidden holds help get you over the bulge.

It was tricky working out the beta for this but after I settled on a sequence it seemed pretty soft for V5. Has this seen a lot of ascents lately?

Location

Between the two hog's back caves there are two grey streaks in the stone which are riddled with two- and three-finger pockets. This route climbs the right-hand streak.

Protection

A crash pad.

With the beta worked out, seems more like V4. Certainly harder than V2 though. May 12, 2018
