the furthest route right in the cave, start by the pipe in the rock and climb on good jugs to the lip then it gets harder.

4 out of 5 stars This one felt much much easier than the 5.11d Flush at same crag

Super good jugs almost all the way. There is one five finger almost hex-shaped hold near the top that one gets the pads of all five fingers on the R. hand wrapped around, and then pinches hard. Other than that, it's hug, comfy jugs on permadraws. Last bit to the chains was spicy because a L.h on a vertical crack gets you up to a R.h 2-3 finger pocket. L.f up to a good foot, then a R.f smear leaves you wanting way better holds to clip from. I hit the first slopper looking hold beneath the shuts with my L.h and felt it sucked, then slapped my R.h up to the other sloper-looking hold next to it, and found an awesome, thank-you-Jesus clipping jug.
