Description:

A beautiful climb with kind of a lame name. The climb starts off of a ledge just to the left of “Flesheater”. The crux comes low on the route moving left and then up past the obvious bulge. There’s a good rest at the top of the bulge, but after that it is thin and crimpy to the top. The move past the final bolt spits off a lot of folks and feels hard due to the accumulating pump.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower from the anchors

5 out of 5 stars Great line

With multiple cruxes, you need to hold it altogether until the last move to get the redpoint.
