DescriptionThis is one of the most well-rounded and consistently challenging lines in the area!
Sit start using an okay edge under the roof, and very challenging feet. Using a remarkable combination of technical footwork, finger strength, flexibility, balance, and body tension, make a tough move around the lip to a small crimp and try to keep your feet on. Adjust and find a good crimp above the lip with your left. Adjust again, and make a reach to a good crimp that will allow you to get past the lip (crux), and finish up the easy slab arête.
Once on top, take a nap on the sunny platform (optional) before hopping off at the start of the Grand Traverse.
A squat start that begins on the two opposed, slanting crimps above the lip is a good variation that goes around V4/5.
