Mantle start to a large ledge. Then huge jugs from there to a small roof with jugs to pull it on. Mantle start is the crux for sure


Fourth line from the left end.

Awesome jug hauling to a great undercling sequence at the roof! 4 stars for sure. The crux definitely isn't the start though, I'd say its pulling the roof

I thought this was a pretty easy 10a (that's what the tag says I believe). I'm going to let the online rating boost my self-esteem for awhile. Really enjoyed the route, lots of fun to climb!

IMO, the best of the three .10's on this wall. Not the hardest but the nicest. .10a/b seems fair.
