Description

A great route, maybe stiff for the grade. I seem to remember the bulge about 25' up being the crux.
A thinner crack till you come out on a ledge, then right side to top.

Location

4 cracks right of Cherry Bomb and Libretto is the 10a on the right that starts off the broken leaning pillar.

Protection

the book says gear to 2", but I think I used a #3.

Tough for the grade and very sustained. Eases considerably ~5m below the ledge. Aug 2, 2016

This route eats the small gear. It's a tougher 5.8 for the area but all the moves are there. The finger crack leads to a ledge then there's a short crack to the chains that will take a couple hand pieces. Jun 27, 2016

I would say that this thing is significantly harder than other 5.8's in the area. I couldn't really get any good jams in the narrow crack but after the bulge until the gravely ledge. The pro, however, is great and the climbing is very thoughtful. A good climb for sure. Mar 22, 2016
