4 out of 5 stars Whew!

Had to think about the moves on this one. Hung once close to the beginning trying to figure out my footwork. The roof looks intimidating but is actually fun and not too hard if you have good beta. The traverse at the top is heady but not very technically tough.

Two ways to do the crux. You can go right from the last bolt, or go straight up.

4 out of 5 stars revisit

First half only - skipped the roof. Tried again and set up TR via traverse from OH anchors to B+BV anchors. Not too hard, just be careful and don't slip into the pendulum! Still felt pretty tough and I wanted to add another piece of gear to help manage the swing factor as you unclip the bolt and come under the first small roof and around the arete. That swing adds too much spice to a challenging move. Come at this one feeling strong, it's tougher and more sustained than OH.
