Very fun eyebrows on the 5.8 first pitch. Though the second looks ultra classic from below, it isn't. Don't bother. Instead, rap from the fixed anchor to the left.

First pitch is just eyebrows. It can get a little run out at parts, but pretty easy. The second pitch is pretty much just the crux, which is a slightly overhanging hand sized splitter crack.

3 out of 5 stars The Crux is crazy.

The route is generally easy, except for the crux, it's a crazy bulging crack, with a weird width.

First pitch was runout and the second pitch crack was a one move wonder.
