This is a great route for learning the basics of hand and foot jamming. Tons of pro the whole way up, so you can focus on your technique without having to worry about anything else.

Bring offset nuts and/or giant cams for the anchor, or be prepared to walk 5-6m down slab and build it very far away from the end of the route.
