Punishment Fits the Climb

Description

Similar to Public Enemy to the right, but more sustained with a harder crux at the top. It shares the crux move of Public Enemy, so in that sense, it's not entirely independent. The grade is from the sustained nature of the line.

Go up the crack and wall left of the crack to a jug shared with Public Enemy. Pull that route's crux, then traverse a few feet left on crimps and poor feet to a long move to a good edge up and left. A couple easier moves gain the foot ledge at the top and a shared anchor.

Location

3' left of Public Enemy.

Protection

Bolts; fixed anchor.
