Climb the steep and leaning left facing corner system with mostly straight forward climbing. The first perplexing crux is brief and sets you up to pull around a small roof. A second thoughtful, though much easier, corner crux awaits above.


Around the corner and left of Lucky Streak. If you go up the small hill you went too far.


7 bolts to chains/biners

Fun corner climb. One hard move down at the beginning then fun moves after that.

Start may be a touch harder after most of the undercling came off in my hand...

Cool climb, I had no idea what the rating on this climb was when i went for the onsight. I think it is a little harder than 11- (11b/c maybe?) due to the start which makes sense now that I see a key hold broke off..

I'm interested to see what others think the rating is now with that hold missing.
