I kept trying the route by doing the crux move dynamically, but was a little disappointed to find the left hand sidepull at the crux. It makes the crux significantly easier and can be done fairly statically. Availability of that hold drops the difficulty significantly to easy 12d. I think the route was originally graded 13a because Jim did the crux by deadpointing from the good holds that you pull down on, but with this new beta it's far from that difficulty. However, it flows a lot better since there isn't a single stand out move any more. Oct 25, 2017
9 bolts up a gently overhanging face to a two-bolt chain anchor. Excellent rock and sustained moves on nice edges on the headwall.

Stay clear of the giant, clever-shaped block to the right of the first bolt. It is loose and has bats behind it. Mar 14, 2014

Stellar climb, iron rock in the business section of the climb. The moves are very French and sustaaaaaiiiiined, with a circus move thrown in for good measure. Mar 15, 2014
