Description:

Best done by climbing a long first pitch and belaying high. Then climb the whole headwall in one pitch, which means skipping the cramped belay ledge.

5 out of 5 stars The soft 10a comments

made by others are BS if you are short. There are some technical moves here that will get you thinking for sure. Great route that has something for everyone.

An amazing 40' of climbing on the second pitch. Great pro and exposure.

5 out of 5 stars very fun route

Two distinct easier 5.10 cruxes (might be 5.9 at a lot of other places). Well protected. Did this in mid July and was actually cold at the start! One of Shortoff's best climbs.
