I found that the key to success on this one was all about getting to a really good hold out right about half way up... if you like fingercracks you will like this hold.... Its a perfect lock...

I liked this route a lot, it was very wet when i climbed it so i'd love to get on it when it was dry now that i know the moves...

Finger crack to the right? Huh? The way Ian and I did the climb, nearly every hold we used was to the left of the bolt line. We used a right-hand sidepull, got the right foot way high, then shot the left hand up and left to a marginal hold in a horizontal crack. Way hard for a 10a, if you ask me.
