This is the farthest left climb and one of the best at the crag. Start up a dihedral feature and then onto the face, following great pinch dikes up the black streaked rock. An insecure, layback crux awaits near the top. Quality.

Good holds and good stances make this a terrific warm up. Less pumpy than that .10a!

The most fun I've had on a climb in a while! My follower thought it was easier than the 10A "Cromagnon". The crux is in the 2nd half and involves trying to prevent a barn door, but it's very well protected.

one of the best 10s I've ever done. Really good movement and balancy at certain sections

Good holds. One of the better routes at this crag.
