Same as the 11c, sharp and techy.

This one is really fun and worth doing. It is not nearly as sharp as Desert Pickle, but a bit steeper and more physical. Be careful going to the second bolt as the climbing is a little insecure, and there is no good stance to clip from until your right hand is on a good flat edge up and right of it. If you pitch going for that edge, you could deck without an attentive belay.
