A burly layback and kneebar section off the ground leads to a good jug and more moderate but really enjoyable climbing leads to a few moves that are shared with Premium (5.12c/d) then a ledge. On the ledge step left to an anchor.

The hard starting moves are well protected but beyond that there is a seam that looks very sketchy to fish in protection. Once you join Premium you can clip a couple bolts.

I decided I was happy just to toprope it, which I set up by climbing the first half of Premium and clipping the Wiggler anchors.


A small left facing corner just left of the big Premium corner.


a few small cams and small nuts to a couple bolts And a two bolt anchor.
You can toprope by climbing (or cheating) up the Premium to the anchor.

Brady used a nest of little wires in the sketchy seam. I'm not sure they would have held a real fall, as it flexes and being soft schist and all. I opted for a TR too.

Top rope was also the only option for me. Really fun sequence at the start but hard to find the proper sequence. Felt soft once I figured the foot work.
