5 out of 5 stars bring the 5

Without the 5, a #4 fits early in the crux roof but a fall would painfully drag you into the dihedral below. Jamming through was then perfectly protected and the #3 camalots served well on the crack above.

4 out of 5 stars Not 5.9

More like the 10a grade given in the Lawyer/Haas guide. Chicken wing just didn't work to get into the off-width section and I ended up swinging into a layback to get through.

4 out of 5 stars Esthesia

Worth the drive, like a slice of Joshua Tree: 1 pitch, a couple of hard moves, great gear, and a whole lotta fun.
