  • Description 

    Start left of "Fit for Life". Climb a hanging block. Reach a left-facing flake and climb that to a small ledge. Go left and then up crack/arete to the anchor. Coool route that should clean up with more ascents.

    Protection 

    Six clips and some small cams will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

    As for all these sport routes, crumbly rock in need of cleaning. This one is not 10-. 10b at least. Worth doing.

    This route is harder than 10-. I agree that it is about 10b in difficulty. The crux is near the third bolt.
