3 out of 5 stars fun good crux

fun if you are taller you can bring your left up high into a pocket under the bulge, backstep and grab a good fin with your left, bring left foot up onto a foot on bulge and scrabble anything you can with your right. Then I think straddle across the right crack with your right leg. From that position was able to clip over the bulge comfortably and continue.

4 out of 5 stars very cruxey

The first half of the climb is relatively easy 5.9 minimally overhung face climb. Traverse up until you reach a headwall/roof before a steep and chossy double crack system. This is the crux and it is well deserving of its 10b rating!

If you can't do a one handed pull up on a hand jam, your best bet is to get a reverse ring lock into the left crack around a thin flake and a three finger jam about 1.5' into the right side of the crack. Then to a jug at the top of the left crack. Others in our party used the wall features on the left and face climbed - bypassing the crack. The rest of the route is easy 5.8 to a ledge and anchors.
