Description:

This is the route on the in the middle of the UC wall that uses only small pocket features. Others have climbed this route using open feat. However, when limited only to small pocket features, this is far more difficult.

3 out of 5 stars Just a Few Small Pockets

Really crimpy, bouldery, and pumpy pocket problem. The crux is a big right-handed deadpoint off of the two smallest crimpers on the wall, with no feat for support - pretty damn hard.

There's a second, easier crux after that which involves a move with no footing again.

Took me a while to work the moves out, will be a lot longer before I expect to redpoint.
