Burly crux.

Easy to build TR anchors if you don't have the gear (or the nuts) to lead it.

Most will want a couple LARGE pieces (#5 Camalot and larger) or be prepared to run it out towards the top. With only one #5, I ended up backing off on lead and opted for the top-rope instead.

This is one of the first routes I did in Yosemite, almost 10 years ago. I had major problems with the crux, and think I was crying by the time I finally got to the top of the climb!

If you use the cheater flake inside, this is pretty light for the grade.
