Description:

Fairly tricky start move followed by balancy moves with good rests then sustained crack and face climbing to a nice hand-jam finish. Belay from a tree on a good ledge. Meets up with the standard Nutcracker climb after another pitch that we didn't do.

4 out of 5 stars Great route, but busy!

The 5.9 start is the way to climb this route if you are up for it. It is a great first pitch that takes good gear. Once the start meets the original line it will be busy so get on it early and climb fast.
