Description:

Thin crack testpiece. Powerfull and pumpy fingerlocks with delicate feet are what to expect. Though the moves are hard the jams are locker so it makes a good lead. Protects well on gear, (small Aliens, TCU's and offset nuts) but is short so good placement and often down low is recomended. Usually stays dry and in the sun in the winter so its a good place to hang out and pump out when the weather sucks. Its also a good place to practice (clean) aid. Aid rateing goes at C1.
