Was matched on this when it blew, pretty spooky.

Just right of Buy Gold is a line of bolts leading to a steep headwall on the left side of a blunt arete. This is Buy Low, Sell High. Climb the steep slab up a short left-facing corner past several bolts. Reach a ledge below a steep headwall. Makes several long reaches climbing close to the arete. Power past the crux reaching a ledge and the anchors.


11 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

BLSH is another fine line that climbs up good stone on this improbable looking crag. I thought that the run out at the next to last clip was a bit spooky. It appeared to us that moving right to the arete and then back left to the face was the proper way to handle the finish (?).

This deserves a better rating, fairly moderate at the bottom more like 5.10b, but gets very spicy on the upper face, with a strong lay back to a sharp ledge throw, for the crux. Going right to the arete after the crux is key as Richard states.

11d-12a, to call this 11c is a joke and kinda annoying.

This climb is definitely harder than Buy Gold (rated .12a but more like .11c). The grades of these two climbs could be switched. I think this is the better climb of the two as well. Good climbing the whole way.
