Description:

5.10+; climb the obvious unprotected start left of Grease Gun Groove to a stance and gear. Continue up face and corners to a blocky ledge under a bulge. Move through steep bulge (crux) to a jug followed by a second, lesser crux (a topout move.) Lower from fixed anchor on tree.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

I think if you keep focused on the lower portion you would be fine. I think you can protect the crux with a nut.

3 out of 5 stars fun climb

I think it would be a heady lead due to lack of gear on the bottom half of the climb. Nice moves through the orange rock.

4 out of 5 stars Felt much easier this time

Reachy start for this shorty, but, once you do that, the moves are great. The crux is a one move wonder.

3 out of 5 stars Nice climb, two hard moves for this shorty

Ok, It was hard to get off the ground (I am 5'2") and then it was less hard to do the crux move. The crux as really only one move, just need high feet. This is a fun climb and worth doing.
