Description 

A solid climb, featuring a burly start down low, and a seemingly never ending crimpfest up higher. The climb starts at a small roof with a high handhold next to a crack, and pulls straight up the crack to the first bolt. Work your way up the arête, using sidepulls, crimpers, slopers and nasty foot smears.

Location 

3rd bolted route to the right of the leaning blocks.

Protection 

13 bolts?

I don't think that's the original start Micah.

That's the way I climbed it... How does it start?

Starts ~4' to the right of where you described, just below and a little right of the 1st bolt. When that area is wet we use the more direct start you describe.

FYI, all the bolts are rusty.

Agree with Micah's directions and David's rating. Did this route today after three months off of climbing. 5.10b.
