Description

Starts out very technical and footwork intensive with small crimps before transitioning to steeper, more featured climbing.  The crux seems to be navigating the smooth face from the 2nd to the 4th bolt.

Tons of fun and maybe a little stiff for the grade.

Location

At the far left side of the first section of the Mahican wall; to the left of the obvious corner that is Tossin Ze Chossin.

Protection

6 bolts to chains.

I put this thing up without having climbed many other lines at Thacher. Could be a little sandbagged. Crux is def the thin lower section but technique is rewarded with fun overhanging climbing above. Jun 7, 2018
