This has thoughtful, hard sections in a couple of places. All of the hard parts are thin and balancy.


This is left of Squid Kid in front of the upturned root ball. It has Cassini hangers with the first a little way up.

Super thoughtful and balancy full value 5.11 climbing. Definitely a fun climb. Gotta get back out for the RP!

Fun climbing, sustained 11ish all the way to just before the anchors. I somehow didn't see the huge jug above the crux until after my fifth lead fall. The crux felt 11c to me, but maybe if I did it again knowing where the jug is, I might think differently. Same height as Squid Kid. With a 60 meter rope, I had to swing over to the ledge next to Squid Kid and then downclimb the last 8 feet.

Excellent pitch, engaging and fun climbing throughout.

Rock is great but climbing is awkward. The crux is not all that enjoyable for the tall and not very likely for the short. Not a great route. Go up the hill for a super classic 11.
