Description 

The clean and varied crack just to the right of Much Ado About Nothing. Atop the crack, muscle through the rimrock crux, clearing a small roof on big holds. Original finish traverses out left to the rap anchor of Much Ado.

Location 

Just to the right of Much Ado About Nothing. Look for a set of bolted anchor underneath the obvious roof at the cliff, this is the line to the right of that.

Good route. Pretty full-on for 10a. Most people do not climb through the rimrock, but instead cut left to the hanging chains atop Measure For Madness/Much Ado About Nothing. Its a bit of a tricky traverse though!

Sustained route right up to the crux at the top. Not doable as a 5.10- without going left into Much Ado and even from there it's a pump to the chains. Also second stopping at the lower chains.

Going to say that the route up to the first set of chains (so, without pulling the roof) is about 5.8. Felt easier than any moves on Azog or Othello.

@K. Robinson - I'm not sure you were on Puck? Its pretty sustained with several 5.9+ or 10- moves down low and through the middle. The whole route is only a hair easier than As You Like It, which I would say is solid 5.10.

Azog has a bunch of 5.4-5.7 on it, with only about 3 moves of maybe 5.9, so saying felt easier than "any moves" on Azog is confusing to me. Did you climb the thin line mostly fingers not much stemming and cut left to the hanging chains atop Measure for Measure?
