Start at the top of a boulder; climb up a steep arete with big handholds to a face, and into a dihedral. A few stemming moves lead to the anchors. The crux is right off the ground, the rest is 5.9.


Middle of Pink Wall - look for a prominent boulder.


10 bolts to 2 open shuts.

I noticed good holds just out of reach for me to start on (im 5'9") so i used a ok pinch on the arete and ok left facing side pull for the left hand.

This route was nuts! Idk what they mean by 5.9 climbing after the start but, once you get on the face and up too the stemming, its tricky. I'm 5'6 so it might have had an impact. Still it was a stellar route to do. Only gets pumpy at the anchors and start. Do it!
