Description:

A hainous sequency finger crack start with few small pockets where the finger tips can fit, and on which you have to pull like mad, goes on for 30ft, until a ledge for a rest. The end of the climb is probably a 5.10 lieback on a flake, much easier, feels nice like coasting in a breeze after pedalling up a hill.

4 out of 5 stars Solid route

A good route that is slighty sketchy at the bottom, slot a nut in down low and blast up to the ledge and your home free. Upper part of the route is easy to protect and really fun.

5 out of 5 stars Sickness

I really enjoyed this one. It's savage down low and elegant up top. You have to get used to pulling those fingerlocks down to your hip. Takes great pro.
