Description:

you can either access the upper (good) 10- pitche from the top, or do a 5.7 dihedral pitch and to weird 8 crack pitch from the bottom to access the rest. The meat of this climb is the last pitche. It starts as 5.9 nice steep dihedral that ends on a pedestal. From here, look in awe at the roof above and wonder how it's only 10-. Place some gear about 1/2 way out the roof and get horizontal. Pull the roof and continue up the weakness/crack system on the overhanging headwall to the top. Total fun guaranteed or your money back.

Such a good climb! Worth every foot! Hard to grade, at just biceps on buckets!

4 out of 5 stars proud last pitch

did all three pitches. pitch one would be okay if it wasn't wet at the top. there is a good 60ft of bush between p1 and p2. p2 was pretty good and then one of the proudest 5.10 pitches ever! the exposure and commitment surely make the grade. a must do for the 5.10 nc trad climber.

5 out of 5 stars went much easier...

...this time. Last time I fell off and had to lower back to the belay. This time it all felt much easier. I'd give the corner 5.9 and the roof a juggy steep 10a. It gets 10b in the guide and I thought so the 1st time up, but I think 10a is more appropriate.
