Description:

Fun pockets head to a midway anchor at 50ft for a good 10d (7 bolts + anchors). You can treat the midway anchors as the 8th bolt, however, for the exciting 11a finish. Another 4 bolts on steep buckets lead to a short roof crux and a fun finish at the anchors at the top of the wall.

5 out of 5 stars Great route.

Link the pitches together for an awesome 11a. Crux at the top feels sketch with a good pump. Milk your rests!

4 out of 5 stars Ascent header

This climb is good to the last clip. Work through the lower part of balancy moves and a few small pockets with sketchy feet. Climbing above the 10d anchor gets a bit steeper but the holds are awesome.
