gettin to the business!


This climb has awkward finger jamming crux on good rock. It starts up a left-facing corner on the west face, and continues up a crack to the top.

Very enjoyable, especially on a nice breezy day.

Seemed difficult, certainly more difficult than 9- like the previous poster noted. The crux is a single move on the first 1/3. I guess if you nail it without thinking about it or shopping for the best way to do it, it could seem easier.

That unfortunately, was not the case for me and although there were no falls...there certainly could have been and was thankful I was not leading it.

Good and funky! Pro is good and sort of in the way. Pick your poison, good pro or a good pinkie lock at the crux. Eases quickly. No bolted anchor on top. Rap from M and M's Plain.

nice for it's variety. Fun perplexing moves and pro in the middle. Climbed to the top, anchor in cracks 40' back, but you could stop at bolts of Bare Leigh Legal.
