Description

This climb used to include a small dyno off of the clipping hold for the first bolt...until I broke the hold. Now either do a huge dyno out right off of a two-handed jug or use an intricate sequence straight up. Either way, the grade hasn't really changed and the climb remains super fun.

Protection

QDs; rebolted with SS glue ins summer 2015. 6 bolts. Chain anchor with permadraws.

[Hide Comment] Difficult climbing up to 3rd bolt and then gets progressively easier! Clipping the first bolt is a bit tricky and off balance, so I definitely recommend stick clipping for safety. 2nd bolt also difficult to get to. Nice crimps that lead to an off balance diagonal pincher for left hand to more crimps. At 3rd bolt it joins up with Tweener. In the middle, a hand hold broke off on me, causing me fall, but there are better, sturdier holds still there. If climbing on TR there is a little bit of rope swing on the bottom since this route is right of anchor, so I recommend directionals. 6 bolts. Chain anchor with permadraws. Jul 25, 2018
