Technical steep climbing where the rock keeps getting better. Scramble up through the overgrown ledges to a belay below the dangling daggers. Climb briskly by way of cracks and hidden jugs, clipping a solid pin before a wonderful 'bridging sequence.' From an ensuing stance, commit to desperate laybacking with poor feet.
