Climb the thin crack and face moves 80 feet to the right of Something Interesting to a left facing overhang/corner. Go right around the corner and up the beautiful crack to belay under the next roof. Head right around the arete and over the next roof, then up to the ledge. Climb the right facing corner above to the top. A CLASSIC route for it's grade!

Second Second ascent by: gblauer on 2014-06-27 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Felt great today.

First time I have done this climb in a long time. 2nd crux felt much easier than in the past. First crux is a grunt, I found a new, intermediate crimp. Who put that there?

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb, two good cruxes

Did P2 as well. P2 is a somewhat reachy roof pull (for this shorty). There is a gear anchor up and to the left. Need a 70M rope to get down in one pitch.

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb

I think it's hard for the grade. THis shorty can make the move around the nose, but, it's insecure. Upper crux is a bit easier for me. I was offered the pink point, alas, I am a puss and I turned it down. I am glad I did, my leader didn't place a ton of gear.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: p_wave on 2012-03-19 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars It's ok

Not as amazing as I thought it would be. Found it to be kind-of a one move crux but a pretty hard one. Be careful not to get sucked into the 10X. I took a hang trying to figure out the one move and then got it second try. I'm sure I would be able to repeat next time but it makes for a tricky onsight...

4 out of 5 stars really cool

Led P1. Followed P2. Thought P2 was a little soft. P1 was just fantastic.
