Great little secluded climb. I found the beta to be vastly different depending on whether your wingspan is on the longer or shorter side. Since I'm of the latter type, I had to use some technical beta that I thought made the route a lot of fun. A lot of body tension between my arms and a toe or heel hook. If you have a longer wingspan, you can just bump up the sides of the rock (and to the flake) in just a couple moves.
