A good route for those who like crimp ladders. This climb is almost a Needles experience. If the Southern Hills granite and the Northern Hills limestone had a baby...this is what the bastard would look like. A lack of jugs and really secure holds might harsh the mellow of most limestoners who seek out huge holds on steep terrain. But if you love to crimp get on it! Think Rushmore's Static Cling on black slabby limestone. Don't call a whambulance halfway up! Keep inching your way up intermediates and reach and high step when you can. Worth doing! Get on it!
Like they say, "Tall climbers climb and short climbers bitch." Located in an alcove higher up the hill on the very left hand side of the biggest baddest buttress in The Danks.
