[Hide Comment] Currently has fixed draws. After the obvious crux at going out the small roof, you get to a nice jug rail and then either have to go straight up on awful holds (1/4 pad crimps) or go straight left onto the next route, up and then back right. The direct path seems way hard than the 12b grade I've heard given. The moves to get past the roof and onto the face above really interesting. Nov 11, 2016

[Hide Comment] Fixed draws are gone as of 4/23/17. The dogbones were all very crispy and were dated 2005. Also, a couple of the draws had sharp edges. Please consider steel hardware if it gets fixed again. Apr 24, 2017
[Hide Comment] Straight from the jug rail is the line. Crux is before then. Apr 15, 2018
