Description:

The Nubbin broke, so this climb has gotten even harder. Climb the face to the right of the bolt. Then, traverse left with the bolt at your stomach, and mantle a rounded spot up and to the left of the bolt. If you thought the climb was easy, you are probably at the wrong spot. There are not many holds, and most of them are underclings. The climb is best located by finding the first area where there is a noticable amount of lichen missing to the right of the bolt. You can even throw a fist jam in the large pockets down low.

4 out of 5 stars NOT easy

first 5.11 i've hit up this year. this sucker starts out like a difficult bouldering problem and doesn't get any easier. i see where they are talking about the "nubbin" breaking and after hang dogging on the rope for about 30 minutes i finally figured this problem out. it's short, about 14 feet, but it's a rather difficult climb... fun though.
