Description:

Obvious overhanging face climb adjacent to the gully. Good first 5.10 climb, or warm up for advanced climbers. Follows up large flake to a bunch of small shelfs. The overhanging upper section will burn you out if you decide to get lost Easy top rope set up.

5 out of 5 stars correction

It should be noted that this route is a spicey lead. Safety ratings should not be used to describe toprope setups (which should all be bomber) as many people have done here!

If you lead this route, be prepared for shallow micro cam placements in broken and hidden horizontals.

An excellent climb nonetheless.
