Description:

Very fun climb! Starts with hand/fist jam section to a layback flake to a ledge. From ledge must negotiate a perfect 90 degree two foot overhang with great holds above on outer face. Finish up short finger crack and face to top. Walk off. This climb should be 3 stars instead of 2!

4 out of 5 stars Very Fun Route

More of a typical old-school Arizona 5.9, i.e. some people might find it .10ish. Rock is excellent quality. Protection opportunities are abundant. Bring some small to tiny pieces to protect the crux roof if you are short. If you are tall, there is no crux roof.

4 out of 5 stars Love the flake

Good laybacks on the flake. When you get over it, you wonder how it stays on the wall !
