Description:

Awesome Technical Face Climb truly clears the Head. Crux is smack dab in the middle up arete then eases off near top. Bolted by JBone & Dave Iannuzzi in late 2001.

Yeah. Crux isn't very powerful, but definitely SCARY. What was I doing there :) I ran pass the crux bolt to get better hand hold. This route fits me very well. Slabby and not so powerful, but requires balance and technique. I avoided the best hold on the start, because it shakes (others might want to avoid obious big hold start). I used the alternate crappier hold, and it isn't that much harder.
