Description:

Start just left of Big Flake directly below a horizontal tree on the top of the cliff. This used to be a gear climb, according to the book, but now there are bolts protecting it with an interesting anchor of a loop of chain around the tree above the route. A fun climb with a pair of really unique cruxes for a 5.10. Trust your feet and commit!

3 out of 5 stars fun...

first time climbing on limestone. rock made it hard to trust my feet in places. first part is a bit biting on the finger-tips. one big chain anchor around a tree. loads of fun...made it into a mixed climb. bit of a distance between bolts.

fun, cruxy off the ground and in the middle, with only semi-moderate ground between. This isn't a gimme!
