Horrible move right off the ground, the crux is by far clipping that first bolt, have a good spotter or a crashpad if you're leading.


Leftmost series of bolts, rap off.


bolts and chains.

not sure if it completely deserves the PG-13 rating. Yeah the crux is at the bottom but you're only 4 feet off the ground. And the hold your aiming for is great. The movement after the first clip and through the second is stellar and really fun crimpy and sweet body angles. I'm surprisingly a big fan of this route.
