Description:

Climb the middle of the face past two bolts to the overhang. Clip the bolt at the overhang, grab a right crimper, and make a committing move (crux) up to a decent left hand. Peel your feet and look for a good stance to clip the fourth bolt. Flail through the pumpy, sharp rock to reach the little ledge and anchor.

Fun route. The hard move is significantly easier for taller people.

5 out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun!!!

My IInd sport lead climb & this one's the best climb so far!!
Starts off easy until the first bolt & then gets kinda steep all of a sudden (doesn't look so from the ground). The crux is after the 3rd bolt where you've just got to lean back and commit to the hold a little above your reach (unless your ape index is 3 or more ;)
Once you've reached the anchors, Breathe out and Enjoy the beautiful view!!!
Cheers!

4 out of 5 stars Plane above..

I loved this climb, found it by accident. I pulled the crux w/ my right on the crimper , left on a flake I pinched just above an obvious undercling then commited to the Thank God just under the 4th bolt w/ my right, swung free ,matched hands and cranked! What a Rush!
