Description:

A great route with good pro and an awkward crux. Locate an obvious right angling crack near the right side of the tree covered ledge.
P1. Follow the crack to a ledge at 40'.
P2. Continue up the crack past a tricky crux at the niche, to a belay ledge on the left.
P1 & P2 can be combined with a 60m rope; be carfeul of rope drag
P3. A short pitch up a crack leads to the summit. Or, move left and rap off to the tree-covered ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Bees

My follower accidentally stuck his hand in a hornets nest that was in the crack. Made the climb slightly harder for him.

3 out of 5 stars 5.9?

this was a hard route. maybe cuz we did it after The Book, or maybe cuz we're weak, either way it felt harder than .9?
