Thin edges at the start quickly give way to pockets, edges and even a few underclings as you twist and turn your way to the break at the roof. Catch your breath and then head up the pumpy headwall making use of the occasional pocket to recover if needed.

A little scrappy but it's cleaning up and will only get better.


Between Worker Bee and Assembly Line in the center of the wall.


8 bolts, ring anchors

Way pumpier than most 10s on the main crag. No single hard move, just a great workout.
