Description:

The first couple of moves are delicate smears. They're probably harder that the grade the guide gives. But it's only ~10' and bailing is a safe jump. After you slot a large cam, the sustained splitter crack meanders along the face. You'll probably do lots of finger and hand jams. But the face is ~60 degrees so tape gloves aren't necessary. The crack takes pro like a champ. And there's a ledge for the anchor. You can also scrable up the side and set up a TR. The guide gives this a star.

Descent Options:

Walk off the side. No anchor. Easy walk off

3 out of 5 stars hard start no need for big pieces

The start is very thin but once at the undercling can safely protect at the vertical crack.

2 out of 5 stars Ugly little climb

I think it's a lot harder than the guide book promised. But then, I suck at slab climbing.

4 out of 5 stars sweet

Bolts up top have been chopped. Doesn't matter - bomber cams to set up a toprope.
