Description:

Great moves at the start and finish. Follow the slightly overhanging fingercrack in the corner to the ledge, continue up strange slopey, hard to protect face. The best finish is to traverse right to the finger crack.

4 out of 5 stars -

Fun, strong, somewhat sequence-y layback up an overhang.

I disagree about the chockstone at the top of the crux- it held my 190 lbs. without the slightest budge. Seems bomber to me. Above the chock it eases off to 5.7 climbing.

4 out of 5 stars 5.9+ MA

Certainly gets the MA designation. Great powerful climb, the chockstone at the top of the inside corner finger crack is a bit sketchy, tread lightly...

3 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

hardest trad onsight or lead at all so far for me, very pumpy and not so great stances for gear, and or not so great gear.
