By far, the sharpest route at the Sumo Wall.

Start up a small flake leaning against the wall. Then step right and move up prickly, vertical, brown stone using funky edges, and pockets that diminish as you go higher. Eventually, the angle slabs out, the rock turns grey, and the "holds" can be likened to grabbing broken glass. Teeter past a definite crux a mid-height using tiny feet, and scant features to some much needed edges that lead to a huge hueco.

Follow seams and jugs up a long, slabby headwall on slightly deteriorating rock.

Bring your good shoes and some fresh skin. A good one if you are looking for some type 2 fun.

Bolts to a two bolt anchor with no chains. Be prepared to rappel off this route.
