DescriptionThis is an oustanding technical climb requiring good crimp strength and footwork. It climbs absolutely perfect black rock. The kind of rock that makes Joe's Valley so special.
Start sitting (more like crouching) on the obvious edge/rail on the right side of the face. Move left and then up via small crimpers, slots and slopey edges and very technical footwork.
This climb is very sustained and does not let up until you are on top.
This problem was originally called 'The Dead Sea' by Jason Kehl and company, who discovered and cleaned the line. You can see the original footage here:
