Head up to a pillar that allows passage through the roof area. Incredible in-cut holds appear then disappear. This is a fine line.


Begin from the left side of Sun Tan Ledge.

This is a good, fun route. I feel that it is easier than 9+ for difficulty. Maybe 9 but just barely.

I thought this was the best route at the crag, with great straight-up climbing and good rock quality.
