Description:

A route worth coughing up. Varied climbing with an unusual and exciting crux. Right of Balrog. Pitch 1: 5.8 PG 80 ft. Climb right-facing corner to an overhang. Undercling right to a stance in the corner (crux), and up another right facing corner. Aim for the middle of the three roofs above and work left around a corner to reach the anchors. Pitch 2: 5.5 G 100 ft. Pitch 3: 5.6 PG 60 ft.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting climb

Undercling traverse "works" if you trust the counter balancing forces. Fun climb.

4 out of 5 stars yikes

couldn't get a bomber placement in the traverse, so took a good long rest before moving on. a fall woulda slammed me about 12' down into a diheadral.

5 out of 5 stars Super Heady crux right off the bat-Great climb

This was my first 5.8 lead and not recommended as a test piece, but highly recommended for a strong 5.8-5.9 climber. I thought the crux was more of a 5.9 move compared to the other 5.8 i did that day, especially considering your last pro will send you crashing into the right facing corner 12 feet to your left. Anyway great climb, really pumped i got through it. fun exposed finish.
