I remember the topout being a little runout/sketchy when I was first on this route. I got the heebie-geebies so bad I lowered off..... oh the shame! =(

Crux is in the middle as you pass through a few crimps. Lots of fun moves and full on pump fest!

Props to the guys who equipped this area. I love the bomb proof glue ins. Very confidence inspiring... whip away!
