Juggy 5.10 climbing to a big move just out of the corner. Sustained 5.12 moves pulling through triple-tiered roofs on positive edges. Skip the bolt out left after pulling the last roof--creates too much drag (thanks ktaylor). Shares anchor with Grace.


Starts between Angle of the Dangle and Grace.


Bolts. Fixed draws on the first 4 bolts now.

Fun, steep, thuggy climbing. Don't clip the bolt out left after you pull the lip. Too much drag...

Placed fixed draws on the first few bolts. If they get manky, PM me and I'll replace the biners or bug someone else to do it.
