Description:

An excellent traditional lead. All of the cruxes are well protected. A #1 BD Cam fits nicely into a pocket between the first two bolts, and medium nuts in the crack make this a well-protected, fun climb. Shares an anchor with Orangahang.

3 out of 5 stars Only a couple 5.9 moves. The top gets 5.6ish, but still fun.

IMHO, the best anchor for this is to use the 5.6 arete anchor as well as the bolt up and to the right of it for better direction.

It would be fair to call this my first legit trad lead. Also, I got in a major car accident shortly after climbing this; significantly dampened the experience.
