Fun lead and well-protected climb. Cool right hand arête with some fun and challenging movement. Crux continues until just past the 3rd bolt. Best 10 in the North Park/Veiny area along with Hail Betty. Footwork intensive. Aesthetic with unique holds. Don't miss the crazy mono-crimper for the left hand in the crux. A personal favorite...
