Description:

Climb the faces and ledges just left of "Never Bet the Devil Your Head". Look for a couple of hidden placements near the start of the route. Gear is sparse but good above the crux, you just have to look for it. Shares anchors with the adjacent route.

3 out of 5 stars juggy sideclings

A bit ballsy in spots, but all-in-all a route worth climbing.
Spoiler:t The trick at the crux (2nd-3rd bolt) is the huge side cling out left.

3 out of 5 stars Interesting climbing

Bolted through the crux, solid gear above and below, it's just hard to find. If you like to be spoon fed your gear placments, this line could turn into a mind fuck for you.
