Description:

Ultra thin steep slab. One bolt at the crux and some crusty old pins. I would beg to give this thing an 5.11+R.

4 out of 5 stars Some fun, some evil.

Fun bouldery moves at the start with a couple of puzzles. Character of the climb changes after you pull the roof up to the BLANK face with the bolt. From there it's evil crimp city up till about the last third. I had the hardest time with the footwork at the crux and I'm not sure my fingers have yet recovered from the ruthless tiny holds in that section. Still, I'd recommend it as a TR. Easy to set up from the Upper Tier or Borrowed Time. You can scramble down to the big ledge with the bolts pretty safely.

I'd give it a 5 for nice climbing if I wasn't afraid I was going to rupture a tendon pulling on the merciless crimps in the middle.

Looked awful lean on gear for a lead... heady for sure around that crux and just after.

4 out of 5 stars yikes

Really just a "headpoint" after TRing it a few times. Scary nevertheless.
