Description:

Excellent climb, with no moves harder then 11a. Start with really fun slab into the true meat of the climb. Overhang of doom! Prepare to pump. Crux up high, so rest whenever you can, but there's an great ledge just afterwards..

5 out of 5 stars Twinkie

The slab move might be smith 5.10. Maybe. The rest is fun jugs all the way with a couple holds that aren't wrapper buckets. Steep!

5 out of 5 stars Sustained, pumpy

The technical slab start has scary fall potential before the first bolt, but the overhang is pure pumpy bliss. I'll be back for another attempt on this one for sure. The sheer length and angle of this route make the difficulty. Definitely not a gimmee.

5 out of 5 stars Super fun!

Blew the OS when I messed up a sequence on the slab. RP my next try.

5 out of 5 stars Easy climbing

But oh-so-pumpy! Figure out where the crux is and don't mess up there. You'll be fine after that until the good ledge rest. The run from the top is chill after that.
