Description:

A fabulous route with very sustained climbing up to a slab rest before punching to the top. Starts on far right side of boulder used to access Palm Sisters. Traverse right to gain bolt line and give'er from there. This route continues trending right after the first bolt and does not head up the obvious dihedral feature. A stick clip is VERY useful for this climb.

prety hard. 2 cruxes low down, then deal with the pump

Great fun, a must-do route at the grade! Fighting the pump ended up being the deal-breaker on a couple of burns. Watch out for the 3rd bolt which has a tendancy to lose it's hangar from time to time...
