5 out of 5 stars second best 10c in the world.

Fantastic climbing! Steep wall with parallel finger cracks!!! WOOT! Good rests in between sequences, easy gear, and perfect rock. Five stars.

(The best 10c is "exaspeator" in Squamish.)

4 out of 5 stars beautiful all the way and long

eats up gear, can even use a nr. 4

bring a second rope for this one to get down

look for solid feet and hands before moving

in the shade till 11 or 12 depending on time off year

solid rock

high concentration climbing

5 out of 5 stars very cool

Very nice pitch! Im still learning crack so it was a good challenge, but theres just enough feet rests to unlock it in short sections. Will return prepared for the Freeblast.
