Description:

2 routes left of Redline (the over hanging arete) I believe. It is the route on the left that starts off with the imposing overhang. Pull up on some nice holds and make the dead point to the horrible pockets. The right one is better. Very fun second roof at the top of the climb. 11a if you skip the bouldery start by stick clipping or other methods.

3 out of 5 stars tick...sorta

Hung many times at the first roof. A long move over the roof to sharp nasty pockets/edges, and it's not over till your feet are up. Much easier for taller people. Pleasant climbing up to the next roof, more bouldery stuff on very sharp black rock.
