Good times on the solid and sharp rock of the uppe...


Start with using the large block on your right and the face on the left for 2 clips to a stance on top of the block. Gain clip 3 from the block and move up and left through the gray face for a few clips to easier climbing. Finish with the final bulgy face with 2 clips to the anchors.


It is in between Period Epic & Period Piece.

Protection & Vitals 

11 clips to anchors.

A new C1 was added in 12/2014.

Awkward at the crux at the top of the corner.

The other climbs in the area are better.

I thought the crux was moving off the big ledge and then also the last moves to the anchors. Be careful coming off the big ledge, as you could fall and hit it.
