Description 

Excellent and dynamic climbing up face/seams with small corners to a two-finger pocket, and the cranky crux... Big move! Climb steep face to top.

Location 

Somewhere down there inbetween Forks Flyer and Perfect beast.

Protection 

Most will want to throw a TR on this thing, but it has seen several bold leads.

Matt Swartz led it with Keith Beckley belaying. Matt says he thinks his was the second lead.

I was talking with Bloom the other day about this very fact. Really impressive leads.
