Description:

Clean left-facing corner to the right of Standard Route start. The crux sequence involves getting established above the small roof near the bottom. Bring an alert belayer, and don't blow the fixed-pin clip!

4 out of 5 stars nice!

Quality rock, takes great gear (sinker #7 BD stopper past roof). Fun variety of holds and movement. Oh, and the fixed pin is gone.

4 out of 5 stars perfecto!

Been wanting to lead this all year...finally got the nuts to do so. speaking of nuts, sink a good nut right above the roof and pull away. the rest is challenging but awesome
