Description:

Begin climbing below two very large coarse-grained inclusions, with a series of large, shallow pockets. Pull through the pockets to the 1st bolt. Above the inclusions continue climbing the featured face on cobbles, edges, and pockets. A good trapezoidal pocket on the right leads to a slab as the angle of the face decreases, but as the angle of the slab decreases, so do the number of positive holds. Insecure fiction and palming lead to the anchor above the ledge.

Descent Options:

Rappel from a 2-ring Fixe anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Father's Day

Uh, that's thin. Some serious palming needed here. TCM really gets thin and slabby at the top. Well protected, but exciting and fun.
