Comments: How is the rope able to go around the overhang like that?

Comments: Once up the obvious splitter, does the route go left into that wide looking pod? Is there any large gear needed for that part?

Comments: Im pretty sure its an aid route. You just can't see the other rope.

Comments: Yea the last few moves felt harder then 10+. Bad feet, funky mantle and long reach to a decent side pull.

Comments: Make sure to bring really thin gear for the top half, not too safe without.

Comments: This is a fun route with secret holds making it easier then it looks. There is a two bolt anchor above this route. The anchor above the approach cracks has a hanger missing but it's possible to get a small cam in below it.

Comments: Pretty tough for a 5.7. I think it's 5.9 neighbor is actually easier.

Comments: Awesome route. Might be a good idea to bring extra finger sized pieces. Anyone know what the route is to the climbers left? It follows a nice hand crack that opens up to a short offwidth, it was very fun!

Comments: A very fun climb. I don't think there is any pg-13 at all. I would also say the pitches are more like this:

p1: 5.9 or 5.10 (depending on how good at slab you are)
p2: 5.8
p3: 5.8 (easy until the offwidth/squeeze at the top)
p4: 5.7/8 (The upper slab is much easier then p1)

Also the run out at the top that people keep mentioning is no big deal. You can literally hike up it.
