Description

Crux is up high gaining the final overlap before the anchor. Nice movement on good stone. Very insecure feeling pulling the crux moves. Yikes!

Location

Start is just left of Nightbird on the slab. Follow the thin line up through two overlaps leading to a vertical crack just right of a corner.

Protection

Single rack to 2". Tricky gear and some run outs on easier terrain. The initial moves through the crux protect well but there is not much gear from there to the anchor and it would be very hard to stop and place it. Tree anchor.
