Description

Thin and technical sums it up. Use twin cracks and the occasional face hold to make your way up. The cracks have decent locks, but are also a bit flaring. I was able to get several "finger lock + flared hand jams" and the occasional layback. Focus on your footwork as you can get good feet in the pods and flares. The climb broke down to having three hard sections (each harder than the last), separated by good, active rests. Once you hit the arete, there's still some pumpy finger locks that get you to the chains.

Location

Just left of "Cursed Crack"

Protection

Mostly thin up to a 0.5 camalot. Stoppers. You can place a #1, but it will get in the way of the only real hand jam! Fixed anchors.

Top 5 single pitch climbing! Sport moves get you to a spicy layback finish. you could climbing this with 3-4 #.4 3 .3 and .5 to protect the top. Really a classic climb Jul 4, 2017
