3 out of 5 stars Interesting climb

The move over the bulge was difficult and reachy and not well protected. A fall there would not be very good. The trick is to go up, clip the pin, step down and traverse left. The feet and hands are small, but, they are all there. It's a "do not fall" for the second, as there is no gear in the traverse. Continue traversing into the alcove and then work you way up to the final, steeper traverse with massive hand rail. A lot of fun, but, no thanks...I won't lead this. The bulge move is too committing for me.

3 out of 5 stars Inobvious line with scary traverse

Finding the start was problematic; went right around the bulge to clip the pin; made to first traverse to the small block; put in a Ballnut before going up to great holds under lower roof. Short and scary but lot of fun. Can't imagine how someone first thought to climb this line, especially with only pitons.
