Description:

Awesome route, consistent, solid 5.10 crack most of the way. Only one bolt on whole route. Center crack on the wall. Start off from ground up mossy/sandy slab for 25 feet. Begin route by climbing first 15 feet of Ed - just to first ledge then stretch left and clip bolt to short pendulum to start crack (if you have a long reach you might be able to do a short, hard, bouldery move rather than the pendulum). Begin crack on nice rock with some sweet jams (10c) and good pro to 2 bolt anchor(50ft). 2nd pitch starts on finger crack toward sweet stem roof (10d)then easier ground to anchors(80ft). 3rd pitch is quite varied, hands, stemming, OW. Beauful exposed stem around corner to last 30 feet for the 10b OW finish (95ft).

5 out of 5 stars first two pitches are among the best I've done!

Pendulum goes free at about 11b IF you are 6'2"!! last pitch has some awesome exposure and is good climbing too!
