Description:

Like most routes here, a classic. Starts with some fairly hard crimpy climbing from a large ledge. This gives way to steep pulling on good holds before some very big moves at the top. If all routes were this good, we would neglect those whom we care about in order to climb all the time... more so

4 out of 5 stars Tough moves.

But the real crux is the pump. One hang! Now I just need the endurance...
