One of the best lines anywhere. A punchy crux right off the bat and then it backs way off (5.8-9ish). The position and the height make for an exciting finish. Enjoy.


Stand-start at the grainy holds to the climbers right of Pop'e Roof.


A pad or two is nice but the difficulties and are down low. If you're strong enough to get through the crux you won't fall off the upper section.
