Another excellent climb in The Pit; nice and long with fun moves (especially through the bottom). My favorite part is as you emerge from the cave, you look out and feel like you're only a couple of feet off the ground.

This is a great climb and probably the best 5.8 sport route in White Rock. From the top of this route you can traverse to the right and set up Gralissa Lean for TR.

The move to clip the third bolt is really hard. You have to go under the overhang and reach up to two decent hands, but it's kind of an awkward move for a 5.8.
