Description:

About 30 feet right of the V-3 corner is a thin crack leading up to a ledge below a roof. Climb the right side of a block in the overhang and up the right facing corner to the belay. Most rap from here. This route used to be 5.10c but is now 5.11b after a hold broke in '95.

3 out of 5 stars Fell twice at the crux!

This was a nice short climb. The crux is hard, but if you do it right, totally doable for the grade. I should be able to get it next time, as long as I remember how to do it.

2 out of 5 stars Hard even before the hold broke

Fell out of the corner three times (horrible rope drag didn't help) before finally getting this, and that was before the hold broke. Tough climbing!
