4 out of 5 stars Major changes

This past spring someone pulled a major hold off. The problem is probably more like V6 or 7 now as you need to traverse left across the thin lip of the cave instead of just pulling the roof and going straight up.

4 out of 5 stars Not a Hinge var.

This is a face climb 3 or 4' right of the hinge problem. The Hinge and it's variations stick close to the arete. While you do start in the same place, you move right immediately.

4 out of 5 stars Crackheads dream

I love jam cracks! These moves are definately no harder than 5.7, but at almost dead vert, it gets progressively harder to lug my 250lb + gear to the the next hold. that being said, this climb could be considered a benchmark for ideal hand/fist crack climbing.
