This climb barely met my self-imposed "worthwhile for climbing" height, but the rock just kept staring back at me - all lichen-y, overhung, and without choss. Throw in the flat belay area nestled in amongst the Arizona White Oak and Madrone - you had me at hello.
What this line lacks in height it more than makes up for with an amazing array of holds and great movement that take you all the way to the top of the small pillar left of Knights Wall proper. Were this twice the height it would easily get three stars.
Did I mention it's overhung...... with good holds? Do it three times and you've got yourself a warm-up for any of the fine 5.12s right next door. Enjoy!
