The crux is getting your foot work right, while on the top slopers. Good holds on the way up, a gaston and a few crimps. Top is the worst, negative angle pinches and one sharp crystal to crimp down on. It will give you a lot of trouble if you don't focus on balancing and shifting your weight.


This route is directly to the left of "Super B" and to the right of "Little Tree". It starts with a right hand on a crack from "Super B", then to the ledge with a left. Work your way left on the face, to a gaston match, then work your way straight up to the top out.


A pad or two and a spotter.
