Description:

Just up the hill from Juvenile, a thin line with rusty pins. It can meader around, especially at the crux area. The guide book directs to go out to the arete and then traverse (crux) back right, but it is posible to avoid the arete with a slightly dynamic move straight up. A great toperope workout and a lot of fun to work on.

4 out of 5 stars Hard!

I've been wanting to get on this for a while, and I picked a day that I was not feeling that great anyway. Good route, but I will probably have to work this, just for that crux sequence.

4 out of 5 stars Really good route!

Amazing route! Finally got the send after a handful of falls on piton #4 (which holds). The #1 you place after the crux is better than a bolt! and there is no meandering around at the crux....it's a very direct line with minimal holds.

The best route on the island (until i can climb 5.13a, then TransAtlantic will be the best)
