Description:

Start at the base of some very red rock. Follow the obvious line and start to work left. The crux is getting back on to the face after the left arete. Move right for awhile and then left again. Not as zigg zaggy as it sounds though. At the top figure out a lieback sequence with a small runout to the anchors. Two star route.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet Climb

Lots of fun moves but it felt a bit harder than 5.10b. Some of the moves were pretty stiff and difficult to figure out.

2 out of 5 stars Interesting climbing

As mentioned, it wanders and is not the "crimp"-event that I was hoping for. Clipping stances were wierd. Decent rock quality though, I was simply expecting a different kind of climb.
