Heading into the one crux-type move.

Private Property MORE INFO >>>


A lower-angle slabby start gives way to a steeper upper wall. Climb through a short section of overhanging thin crack and continue to the chains using big holds.


This is on the far right side of the wall. This is the second route from the right end of the wall.

Definitely not an 11a. The climb itself is just an endurance test, you are mostly climbing on juggy ledges. The crux is probably 10b/c. Return of Manimal to the left of this climb is definitely more challenging. Overall it is an amazing climb!

I certainly agree that it felt more like a 10 instead of 11.A, whereas the 10.C on the far left of this wall warranted a 10.D. Who knows. I thought the crux would have been much more difficult if I were a couple inches shorter than the 72 inches I am. Anyway, don't be scared off this climb by the rating; it's a fun breeze.

Fun route, but nowhere near an 11. The crux looks reachy and difficult, but turns out not to be.

One move wonder about half way up, exciting move for a new 5.10 climber. 99% of the climbing is easier than Rat Stew.
