Can you say "small holds"... I knew you could. This route is hard.


Top rope from trees.

I did what was probably the 2nd ascent of this thing about 10 years ago... I remember the climbing was surprisingly good (and hard!). Greg called it 12c but that seemed pretty stout to me. We did do the crux much differently though since he's much taller than me. Good rock climb. Mar 1, 2013
