Description

An interesting climb with a highly technical start - what I like to call "old school", followed by an excellent headwall finish on amazing holds. Look for a tricky kneebar at bolt 2.

Climb the ramp feature up and right past 2 bolts (and the crux - 11d/12a) to jugs; protect the second well here for the crux below. Make an easy traverse right to a stance below the short but awesome headwall (11) and 2 final bolts. Climb past them to a ledge and an anchor.

Location

Starts just right of "Backdoor Man".

Protection

Light rack up to hand size
