Description:

takes off from the top of Still in Saigon, heading up moderate terrain to an overlap, then steps out right and up to the bolt, then the belay ledge and two bolt anchor. A single rappel on double 60m takes you to the ground, otherwise a second rap from the top of Still in Saigon anchors. Stellar pitch, crux is fun with great pro just below your feet.

4 out of 5 stars Still still

I always have a great time on this mixed route. There are two crux moves one technical and one heady. The friction move at the first bolt, is the tecnical crux and the mantel move just before the belay is the heady crux. This trip I seconded but have lead it many times.
