Description:

Lots of variety on this climb. Some crack, some face/slab and a horizontal roof traverse. On pitch 2 you will pass a 2 bolt belay station. Keep going and belay at the bottom of the roof, otherwise you will face horrendous rope drag for the next pitch.

4 out of 5 stars cool roof traverse!

This route's cool cuz after the route proper go out left under the right huge Eyebrow on Harlequin and finish with the bolted 10d move... oh so sick. Onsighted the sting... the traverse roof felt a little cramped for me 6'2" so was better my girlfriend lead it. Fell on the 10d variation finish which is a bit stout and a one move mantel that is pretty hard.

4 out of 5 stars nice

good all around climb. It would be nice if you could chop up multi-pitch routes in this though
