Comments: Crux move looks worse than it is. I slipped while hanging off my right hand on the ledge jug only to realize that if you move your hand 6 inches right it is bomber. Safe clean fall if you miss it.

Comments: Excellent climb. Did on TR. Especially enjoyed the mono finger slopers and feet only moves. The crux headwall is made a lot easier if you remember your feet, I say again remember your feet!

Comments: Awesome route! Excellent warm up and pumpy crimps straight to the end. Would be excellent if the pitons were retrobolted. Some day I will learn to do this and contribute myself. Try the Death of a Dinosaur on the left-side of the arête and traverse right to End to End once you reach the first bolts for a really fun climb.
