Description:

Just slightly right of Africa, left of the large chimney/crack, start up on moderate edges and flakes. You can make it a little harder by staying just on the face, away from the crack on the right. A few starting moves will get you to a large ledge, where you can place gear in the crack (large gear). Spot the bolt, so you know where you're going, and continue up on thinner edges. Clipping stances are usually pretty good. The route overhangs enough to start getting pumped, but the holds are jugs. Finish straight to the final horns; the chains are on the wall above the finish.

4 out of 5 stars fun, good first 10a

TR'd a few times over a few visits to Cedar; led with one trad piece for first pro, followed by a few bolts. Enough over-hanging to get a little pumpy for new leader at 10a. Led several times; a couple slight variations (stay left on the bulge).

4 out of 5 stars Good for a little early trad practice

Fun route and well worth your time. Take two trips up find a little different route on the second to make it feel like a new one. Only wish that it was about 10 meters longer.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Route

You have to look for the holds sometimes, but they are there. Fun route.

4 out of 5 stars Steep. Bring a #8 hex!

This is not your typical 5.10a. Don't get spanked.
