Description:

For more information, support the park and buy the guidebook by Stewart Green. Whoa! Your in the business from the first move. Expect a crux at bolt 4 and 7. Do a funky hand cross over at bolt 4 and forget about feet because there are none. Expect alot of smeary high steps, turn the hips in and go and don't hang out to long. Enjoy this one!

5 out of 5 stars Definitely not 11d

A very fun climb, probably my favorite in the canyon. There is no way it is an 11d though, the guidebook only rates it as an 11a.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Finally put this one away clean. Excellent route, possibly the best in the park.
