About 100 feet to the right of Something Interesting. Climb an easy left facing corner system to the big ledge, make bouldery moves (5.9, small wires) off ledge to good holds. Follow a left facing corner system to the roof. Back up the pin with a 3 inch piece and pull through the roof (crux) to a small stance (tiny gear). Step right and up to bolt anchors. No one does the grungy 5.2 second pitch anymore. Try to keep top rope traffic down on this high demand pitch.

3 out of 5 stars I should have read my beta!

I had to try again today. Strenuous crux. It's all about the feet.

3 out of 5 stars Felt hard today

All good until you hit the crux. Need to position your feet well if you are short. Nice big move to the v slot.

4 out of 5 stars WTF?

This felt super hard. Quite a bit harder than Co-Ex, in my opinion. Maybe I was missing something. I somehow managed to struggle through the crux, but it took everything I had to stay on and then recover afterwards. Absolutely no place for a 3" cam to back up the pin. I was a bit scared to fall on that pin, but that was probably what got me through it.

4 out of 5 stars peek a boo puzzle crux

enjoyed playing peek a boo from the stance below the roof, then styling the crux...on top rope...

What's the deal with the rockfall on this route? Did it change the crux? It seemed maybe a bit stout for 10b and there's no place for a 3" cam as mentioned in other forums and in the Williams guide...
