This climb looks like it has only one interesting moves, but it's actually quite nice. A fun crux overhang at the start leads to low angle but tricky hand jamming, and the top.


This starts up and left from Doc Holiday and Blacking Saddles, and follows a right-slanting crack.

Grainy and short, with one 5.9 move off the deck leading to 5.7 fingers-hands.
