3 out of 5 stars Slick Granite. Barely there feet.

Don't get too stretched out. Keep feet up and wedge right foot into crack. Great Fun.

4 out of 5 stars Layback

Good sustained liebacking. A nice challenge for newbies or the "lieback impaired" gym climber. There are a few foot holds on each side of the dihedral that can make things easier. Also, slide the outside of your RT foot into the crack whenever possible.
