Description

A few feet right of "Brain Flush" look for a balsam fir tree with a left leaning block at its base leading to a 2 ft overhang.

Climb left-facing corner up to the OH, find the key handhold (height related) and then crank the crux OH, moving up to the thin grooves and a few more bolts. While the crux (5.10a, b?, harder if you're short!) has excellent protection, do not discount the thin, somewhat perplexing moves above. ( 5.9+ ? / PG-13 ?)

Probably a bit easier with smaller fingers. Nothing over a .75 BD needed May 22, 2016
