The crux is the sloping hold and big reach to not so good crimp. Watch out for your fingers at the top.


Bolted Route just to the left of the big dihedrial.

I went with Dano the day he decided to bolt that face,,which he did on the lead fifi hookin the bosch from the ground in classic Dano style. Some chhecas showed up so we were bsing with them for a while, then I decided to do it. Upon reaching the anchors I clipped and started to lean into the rope when i found myself hurtling toward the earth!! Dano cuaght me as I was eye to eye with him- we cracked up luaghing like idjits, as the cheecas sat with large eyes!!! God those were some good times......

Can't come close to as cool of a comment as Ron, but I can say this route is really, really good.

It gives you a few places to shake, but no full rests. It stays on you and has two very distinct difficulties. Techy foot and crimp work will see you through both.

The top has a few different ways, but with multiple sequences that go staying on the direct line, try not to cheat out to either arete, because the direct is waaay cool and not even as hard as the lower crux IMO. Super easy to TR, but the bolts are placed pretty damn perfect so the lead is just hard, not heady at all. Thanks DanO!
