Description:

Starts left of Horseshoes and Handgrenades with a crack/flake system in a shallow dihedral. Traverses right to finish on Horseshoes and Handgrenades at about half-height. An extension onto the blank face (instead of the traverse) has been attempted, but no bolts have been placed.

4 out of 5 stars The Farrier

Very classic moves of a thin diehedral. The crux has no feet to speak of. I agree with zeubanks about the traverse. I'd suggest stepping back and inclipping the 1st bolt of the traverse after the 2nd is clipped (or use a long runner). Otherwise, you'll have some wicked rope drag.

4 out of 5 stars First 5.12

Great moves up to the ledge- two cruxes imo with bad feet. The traverse isn't fun and seems out of place. There should be anchors above the ledge (or a hard extension).
