Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb the slab to the right of Undercling Thing. Some fun balancy moves gets you onto steeper terrain. Then face climb up ledges to a crack finish, it was pumpier than I though it was going to be. Definatly more physical than the surrounding climbs.

Really good climbing, although short. The crux for me was getting from the legdes up to the crack.

Location 

Located to the right of the obvious flake in the center of the area called Undercling Thing.

Protection 

TR off trees or boulders up top.

Or lead using traditional gear. Not much gear to be had until after the crux, just before the top out. You could probably fiddle in a small alein to protect the crux move, but I wouldn't want to fall on it.

I liked this climb as it has a good variation of moves. I agree that the crux is getting into the crack from the ledges.
