Description:

A good line that is more devious than you would imagine. The gear and the climbing are tricky and may feel harder than the given grade. This line can be done as a real rope stretcher if you have a 60-meter rope. The second may have to simul-climb 10 feet if not belaying in the right spot.

5 out of 5 stars enjoyable

A belayed just below the bolt. We finished out left. The bolted climb up the arete overhead is dirty.
I thought this a solid 10

4 out of 5 stars The name is wrong

It's actually "Sleight of Hand," a pun on the fact that if your hands are sleight, ie, smaller, this will be easier for you.

My hands are not sleight. They're fat.

This is best done as one long pitch. The bolt is comically bad.
