Starts right of the bulging arête and ends on the...


The business of this route is right after you step off the ground and seems to be a bit harder the shorter you are. Great water sculpted pockets lead you up into a chimney. Stay left and continue up until you can step right and transfer onto the knife blade feature. Not very hard but very cool, opposing side pulls actually pull outward so you can walk your feet up this crazy fin. A great and unique CK creation.


In the Alcove beginning on the steep streaked and pocketed wall on the left.

Haha, not the warm up we intended, but amazing none the less. We didnt have the book and it looked like a 5.9, after getting to the top realized it must have been a 5.10a/b

Don't think it to be a 5.11

I'd argue the opening moves are 11- If you are not confident at the grade a stick clip of bolt 2 might be nice. The climb definitely eases up after bolt 3.

11- seems appropriate given the tough start of the route, but it eases up substantially after the first few bolts. Shimmy-ing up the coconut tree is probably in the 5.8/9 range.
