Description

A boulder problem start with small feet and a grunty exit gives way to the finest techy, powerful 5.12 climbing American Fork has to offer. This thing is full value power endurance.

Get your fingers ready to crank off of small crimps and amazing two finger pockets. Expect delicate footwork and a high pump factor, given that there aren't many great rests. The crux is smack dab in the middle of the route where the prow is at its steepest. After that, 2 bolts of easy slab take you to the chains.

Location

To the right of Seacliff (10d), left of Bon Voyage (12d)

Protection
