Description:

Lots of thin edging and smearing with the crux being the first move off of the ground. For some, the psychological crux is passing the second bolt on a very thin seam. A small cam (#1 metolius tcu) will fit into a small crack about ten feet past the second bolt. Higher the crack widens and becomes trivial with plenty of pro opportunities. Getting harder all the time.

5 out of 5 stars AMAZING CLIMB

This climb will teach you to trust your feet as there is nothing else to grab onto. This is possibly my favourite climb in the area as it makes you use your feet. Would not suggest it as a lead but for a top rope it is amazing.

Very fun route...fell once right off the ground gettng my balance. I was told this winter (05/06) removed some holds, but not sure as I hadn't climbed it before.

Fell twice. Great climb for a slab. Technical, thin, and crimpy.
