DescriptionP1: 20m, 5.6. This memorable veg-pitch has you hand-over-hand vine-pulling with good stems. A short chimney bit under a tree leads to a ledge (and the VPN Crack). Climb up the wild honeycomb features then carefully traverse to belay.
P2: 33m, 5.11+. Slightly overhanging tight hands to a shallow, featured corner, out a small hands roof to an awesome crack switch then steep widening hands to the anchor. Phenomenal the whole way! Skip the first anchor (27m) and continue to the narrow ledge (33m).
P3: 25m, 5.13d. Slightly overhanging offwidth pod to a section of fists and a handjam rest before the business(!) - 15 meters of every jam being smaller than the last starting with tighthands pinching down to the final finger lock up the 35 degree overhanging calcite covered headwall. Unbelievably aesthetic and challenging. Freed by Logan Barber in May 2015.
