Description

After clipping the first bolt the crux becomes very apparent. Going left rather than right here is key. Pulling up on a couple of crimps will make it possible to reach for a sizable ledge above and from there the climb becomes much easier. Clip into the anchors of Mukat or continue up the wall to the anchors above. As with most routes at the Cliffhanger the chains are very thin and should be rappelled off when possible to save some wear on the links.

I thought the crux was harder than 10a, but I got the crimps and went right rather than left which the description says - I couldn't find anything going left and spent about 10 minutes trying to figure it out. She gave him blue balls 10b the route to the right I found easier and sent it no problem. Oct 23, 2017

I would Agree that moving from the First to Second bolt is the crux! Once you make the move there is a good jug that you are able to clip the second bolt from May 30, 2017
