Description:

Down and left of the top rope crack - "Farewell To Arms". Stand start highball vertical face with long reach crux. There are also many variations on this problem. Long dynos can be had from lower holds, and the left sloper topout (about 3 feet left off the normal topout) adds a hairball factor to the problem, and makes it at least a solid V2...

Descent Options:

The descent can be hairball if not used to it. Traverse left on the big ledge to step-off near Duct Tape. Use the tree as long as it is there, otherwise it will be a friction step.

3 out of 5 stars V1, bring a pad or spotter

Protection is pretty useful if you're not familiar with the top holds (there are good and bad spots). Pretty straightforward climb. Downclimb can be a bit awkward.

5 out of 5 stars Recommended

Sweet dyno. Makes you feel like a badass. Pretty high up though, place your pads right if you wanna' fall.
