Description:

Fun and appropriately named route. The crux is mid-way up, as you climb an overhang. Though it's rated 5.10d here, in at least one topo it's rated 5.11.a.

4 out of 5 stars Finally!

After what must have been at least 10 tries, probably more like 15, I finally understood the moves needed to get over the crux.

Instead of using two slopers and trying to reach the hole with my right, I change my right hand to a side crimp, layback a bit to the right, match hands, then reach the hole with my right hand.
