Out-of-the-box problem solving will help with the multiple cruxes of this fantastically technical face climb. There is a short runout over easier terrain after the last bolt.


From the Huffin fist pitch belay, climb the obvious line of bolts.


Bolts and a .75 camalot just before the belay for a directional.

This thing is really fun and technical. It also is not PG-13 in my opinion. Falls are super safe, but do bring a .75 for the traverse left on the ledge to anchors to take out the spice. Awesome foot work, mantels, lie-backs, and magic will get you up it.
