DescriptionStarts with two bolts of hand jamming and stemming in a textbook dihedral. Two bolts will lead you a large ledge where you can shake, clip the high third bolt, and ponder the arête above. Slap, slope, crimp and hook your way up the arête, finishing just right of The Sampler.
Original rated 12b, but downrated after easier beta was discovered by a clever Canadian. So even though the rating is 11b (maybe it will change with more ascents), it may feel much harder unless you find the right beta - read comments below for a little of that beta.
With the downrating, I should also add a bolt above the second bolt. I left it a bit runout there, with the original 12b grade in mind. The climbing is quite easy, but there is ground fall potential. If the climb is going to be called 11b, I should add the bolt.
