Description:

A great little sport climb. According to Watts, the first on Red Wall. Start on a ledge about 100 feet or so downhill and to the right of the base of Super Slab. Make a tricky move off the ledge, attack the crux above bolt 2, and enjoy the great moves to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Classic Edging

Sweet climb with a nice thin crimping crux above the second bolt. Really good route!
