Description

Begin with crimpy moves leading to a big hueco at the third bolt, then through more cruxy bits on varying holds punctuated by the occasional big hold and OK rest oppurtunity every 3rd or 4th move. Then work into a horizontal break before the roof. Negotiate the bulging roof with big pulls between big holds and enjoy the air below.

Location

Just right of casual entertainment, visible from where the trail hits the wall. Got a toaster sized hueco 25 feet up

Protection

9ish bolts to 2BA

This is a great climb. Having about 6 or 7 12a redpoints under my belt it is one of the more solid ones, but still at the grade. A devious but rewarding crux sequence leads to sustained steep to very steep climbing higher. Never a gimme, and pump management is key for those who project 12-.

Learning how to milk the less good rests on this thing was key for sending it.

GREAT view at the chains :) Jul 21, 2017
