Description:

Begin under the roof, on a right-facing sidepull jug. Climb straight out the short overhang on the amazingly perfect crimps with very cool moves. All feet are on, but the the vertical crack and the handholds associated with it out left are off-route. There are a couple tricks for this one that make it a bit easier than folks once thought, including a LH bump move to a crimper edge, a somewhat dangerous but bomber heel-toe lock and a kneebar scum that works for some folks. Safety-wise, there is a little horn on the slab behind the climber's back that easily allows you to hang a pad on the slab for safety

4 out of 5 stars C

Make sure you put a pad high on the slab. Could be a dangerous spot to fall. I'd rate it higher if it wasn't for the boulder behind it, but still a fun route.
