tricky, slippery crux. Upper still a little dirty. Squeeze between two bolted easy cracks.

I agree with the squeeze description but the lower moves looked so cool!!!

Fun, thin crux. To restate, avoid reaching to the crack and associated holds up on the right to keep it 10+. If the bolt was placed a little further left it may have reduced the temptation to reach to the crack system on the right. But I suppose maybe that would've exchanged for the temptation to reach to the crack system on the left... Anyway, thanks for putting up these routes. Fun stuff.

Brutal slab crux, especially in the sun (aka climb it before noon)! The amazing looking ledge is way slicker than it looks. Still pretty fun :)
