Description:

This route is just around the corner from Salathe base. This climb starts out with some hard 10a fingers and the crack gets wider as you climb higher going into some OW. A hard climb for 10a. Bring extra large gear!

4 out of 5 stars nice and hard every move of the way

no need to run it out on the bottom
control and poise will allow one to get gear in to prevent a grounder, after that choose the gear and place it well

the climbing widens till all the large cams are used
hopping the cams and staying clam were the ingredient for
a good solid climb

not at one point did i feel out of my element
like the wide stuff

the anchors will allow for a top rope on ahab

not a fun climb wide and bulldogish

3 out of 5 stars guess I need to work on fist...

ran the start way out on the fingers and hands, then had to battle once the crack was taking 3.5's. Know what to work on now...

5 out of 5 stars Nice

Get good pro low. Upper section provides solid fist jams. I had to stack in a couple of places. Sustained 5.9. Two 60m to get off.
