An edurance fest up the center of the wall. The holds get smaller near the top when the pump is on.

4 out of 5 stars Loose but oh-so good

I don't know how many holds I yanked off on this thing, but despite this, I immediately fell in love with this choss pile. The sticky bit is up-up and away just after a traverse on sloping holds. This one doesn't let up on you for a second. If your endurance is crap, you're gonna get your ass bit.

My last FA of 2001 and as a single man. This project took years to complete. I never tried seriously working the route until 2001. Great to finally finish it. Confirmation would be great.
