1 out of 5 stars .

would be tricky to protect, and has a committing move with definite groundfall potential if you don't have some little gear perfectly in there. Not for the fledgeling 5.7 leader.

Second Second ascent by: donald949 on 2008-10-24 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Right hand crack on face.
Seems to have two variations. Moving to the left after the start leads to a protectable crack, climbed as second.
Moving to the right leads to unprotectable seam, climbed on TR. However, this variation had great moves. Good hands on smears that lead to bomber hands on lieback feet. Fun powerful climb.
