A gripping warm up! This steep and reachy route climbs over edges and pockets to a shared anchor. A balance demanding, tedious crux move awaits the unsuspecting climber at the top.


This route is the right most line at the Shady Side West.


Three bolts and a common anchor.

Height-dependent route that is only 5.9 if you are short (and significantly easier if you are not).
