4 out of 5 stars Great climb

Fell at the crux. Super fun climbing. Upper crack bulges and can give you trouble if youre pumped.

5 out of 5 stars Jam or Lieback?

It's up to you...do you trust that friction? Well, do you?

Apparently the first free ascent of this line was John Long and John Bachar on toprope. The second was Bachar, solo.

5 out of 5 stars Varied

This climb has everything. Slab, layback, jamming, face, and a dyno ( Just kidding).
Kinda tricky to place gear for the crux. Bomber when placed though.
