DescriptionIt's no alternative fact that this route is amazing. At the start of cleaning we just weren't sure what this section of wall would yield.
When it was all over we were blown away to have found this gem in a sea of somewhat dubious rock. This route should not be missed!
Begin below a ledge and climb three bolts worth of intro climbing. Standing on the ledge you can see how the wall arcs from slab to vertical to overhung. The difficulty follows this cadence beginning with balanced slab which leads to vertical edge pulling before you are staring down a devious and dynamic three bolt crux section involving compression, high feet, and a long toss to a shark's tooth crimp. Solve your way through the crux and you are rewarded with an amazing 25ft. of slab before you clip the chains at the top of the cliff.
This just brushes into the 5.13 grade and it is a total blast to climb.
