no pro for the first fifteen or twenty feet, then you find the crack and go from tight hands, to perfect hands, to wide hands, to fists, to arm bars. maybe the best crack climb at the black cliffs. 5.9+ fo' sho'.

5 out of 5 stars sweet route!

awesome crack, with all sorts of fist and hand jams, very cool route especially since I am not used to this style of crack climbing. There are some small cracks down low with good placements for small gear, the main crack just gets bigger and bigger as you go up. Good STUFF!

5 out of 5 stars The best

I got a decent green alien at the bottom and then a bomber blue alien a little higher. I think the crux is more endurance than anything ...Fun crux offwidth finish.
