Description

Interesting 11+/12- climbing brings you to a dynamic crux above the 4th bolt. Punch it through a slight runout on moderate terrain to a rest before the crux. Hard moves right off the rest slowly ease off to the anchors. A fixed draw has been added on the 5th bolt so that it is possible to clip it off the jug, otherwise it is scary to hang a draw. It can also be used for cleaning.

[Hide Comment] I highly recommend stick clipping the first bolt and being very careful going up to the second. The rock below the first two bolts is quite friable and a bunch of the holds down low have broken off recently. Definitely don't climb it if it has been raining. Getting through the crumbly rock is worth it though because the rock and movement from the second bolt on are five-star!!! May 23, 2016
[Hide Comment] I pulled off three tiny crimps on the start before noticing it looks like most people start a bit right of the bolt line on some big (but still chossy) start holds. Oct 30, 2018
