4 out of 5 stars Lead

I led this route and realized it was alot more mellow than it seemed from the ground. There was always just enough gear to keep you off the ground.



The rock can be skechy on karen rock so make sure you take protection wherever you can get it.

Gear beta:
@ 15' #2 link cam in pocket/crack
Then .75 cam, followed by two more small/medium nuts

5 out of 5 stars Like two climbs in one

I like this climb because you start off with huge jugs and a bit of an overhang and then when you get to the ledge, it transitions to balancy face climb with a thin crack you can use.
