Description 

The farthest right line near the dihedral. Funky finish.

Another Big Block sandbag route. Nice 5.11- climbing to the last bolt, then height-dependency kicks in. I'm 5'9" with a +2 ape index, and the top moves were solid 5.12. Quite possible that if you're 6'+ the 5.11 rating may be reasonable. Full-on knee bar rest just before the crux at the top and I still couldn't get to the chains. Definitely harder than the BB V4 boulder problems for us normal size folks. Good news is the bolts are close enough together at the top it goes at 5.11/A0.

quickdraws, 2 BA.
