Description:

On the W Face of Penny Boulder, just S of the NW arete. Climbs on thin red-iron protusions. Very fun moves on thin crimps and pinches. I find a flag very useful.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet route

Feet get a little sparse near the top, getting the first right hand crimp is small challenge, but after that if you trust the nublet footholds all is well :D
really fun.

This route had kicked my ass for a year, but its probably my favorite problem in Rotary so far. Very nice and unusual movement and balance.
