  • Description 

    Right of Dominator is a hand crack with 2 bolts, one low, one high. Richard calls it 10a, but it is way easier than Dominator.


    2 bolts and gear to a 2-bolt anchor.

    Would call this a 5.9+ good gear and solid ring jams the whole way. A good lead for an aspiring trad climber, jush wished it was 2x as long.
