This is route is one big crux. It involves body tension, long reaches and slab work to make it to the top. Overhanging granite is fun so I really like this one.


Start to the left of Skinny Puppy near the arete.

This climb is sick. I felt like I was going to pop off the wall the entire 50'. The moves are super rewarding and make this climb feel about twice as long.
