A test of thin hand jamming skills. Starts with fingers and quickly transitions into slightly overhanging, and flared, green camalots for a short stretch. Hard for the grade. Sep 13, 2016

I thought this would be a pure crack climb, but I found it to be more of a mixed compression/face climb with intermittent crack moves. It's basically a v5 boulder problem into 5.11 climbing. It climbs a lot better (and harder) than it looks.

I'd also recommend putting a long runner on one of the anchor chains, else you're unprotected on the final lichen-y slab move to reach the anchor's clipping stance. Oct 15, 2018
