Description:

(Onsight spoiler ahead) A fairly juggy but extremely overhanging roof with a cool toe hook move and good clips, leads to a challenging lip to pull. Off of a nice horn (you can see in my picture) then a string of wide pinch grip holds (you can see the first one in the picture) leads to a decent rest. Instead of pinching, you can use a sideways knee bar (be creative to find it, and you'll understand the name), and work your hands up the pinches/sidepulls and crimps. Then a a few thin moves up the rest of the arete, and a small hard to find foot far out right leads to a jug. Another clip and some 5.7 climbing leads to the anchors.
