Hayden at the crux.


Despite the fact that it's caked in chalk and generally has a crowd around it on a busy day, this is a fun dynamic roof problem. Follow the flake system to a fun crux, and finish on the two decent holds near the end of the cave.

Harder than it looks when you first see it. The moves are pretty straight forward, however the feet are really polished and you're quite scrunched in some parts. The crux is definitely getting into the small pocket and staying in until you transfer to the other rail. Someone broke the last jug within the last year, however it's still a jug; if anything you now have a new foot for Nerve Extension.

THIS LINE TOPS OUT (not by the name of big joe or nerve extension)

Kind of a shame that it was named and graded to different holds. Climb as far as you can!
