If you like techy face climbs, you're going to like this one. However, if it becomes too popular, I think the top flake below the crux is going to deteriorate. Start at a low overhang and pull up on to the thin face. From here, it's just connecting the dots between small flakes with fairly sustained moves. After your reach the flexing flake just below the 5th bolt, the crux hits you hard! Lots of very small crimps and big reaches to the finish. This feels hard for 5.11d.


Continue left along the cliff from the approach trail, passing the Psycho Wrangler area. As the buttress juts out again, this is the first route around the corner on an orange and brown plated face.


6 bolts, shuts.
