Description

Start on jugs under the roof, climb up arete/face using small crimpers and hard lockoffs. It has committing but easier climbing at the top. Rumor has it, the FA was spotted by a loaf of bread, covering a spike, and nothing more.

  • ***Nov 2014, this climb has broken, the first left hand crimp before the gaston snapped off leaving a worse undercling-facing crimp. doug re-sent, and thought it was more like v10.****

After a couple more ascents, the grade seems like it'll settle at v10.

Location

It is around the arete from Competitive Urge.

Protection

A few pads and a spotter.
