  • Description 

    Same start as Hypotenuse, but where that climb goes left to the huge corner, this goes up and right, up the scary-looking "Constriction".

    Start left of a large, clean, left-facing dihedral. The dihedral curves into an overhang, and at its center is a clean, small crack running the length of it. Move up an easy face, then a steep bulge with great, solid hand holds to crank off of. A huge hold at the top of the bulge signifies the end of the crux, move up and slightly left to finish.

    Protection 

    Long slings for TR, standard rack for trad.
