|BETA ALERT!... Enjoying the benefit of watching my partner pump out and peel trying to protect the crux roof, I took the lead. I breezed up to his high point, a stupid easy back step high on the left atop the right facing corner provided a no-hands stance for a relaxing gear placement. The crux section is 5.7 from this stance, least according to my measure. A good route to break into 5.8's.|

|I must have misread this climb something fierce, haha. Took multiple falls at the crux trying to figure out how to get my body over that freakin' bulge!! Great climb, super fun and interesting moves on great rock!|

rating: 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a PG13
Easy climbing to the first ledge right before the slick slab and roof crux. I guessed I missed the easy hands free back step (as Craig mentions above ^^^) because pulling over the roof is a pretty stout move, felt more like 5.9. There are two cracks that run up the roof, the one on the right is thin but offers a great high right hand. From here you can work your hands higher, throw a foot up and make the move to get over.
Protects well .75 to #4. I placed a #3 right below the roof and now see in the notes above about placing a nut in the crack. If you do/can place a nut up high that would really protect the crux because having pro beneath the roof and taking a fall off the bulge would whip you hard into the face underneath. So PG-13 with pro underneath the roof, however, if you can get a nut/cam in the crack above the roof before pulling the crux should be good to go.
Awesome climb and a must do on upper MS.
