Description:

5th Route. Hard climb with a great technical layback as the crux. Have to get your feet really set and then splay out far right to get good position to go above the layback. The layback pumps you out as the climbing above it goes on for about 5.9. A real pumpy route!!

4 out of 5 stars It's still hard

After the layback move, it backs way down. The rest of the climb is sustained but much easier. I just don't think I could lead this, I have a lot of trouble at the 2nd/3rd bolt.

4 out of 5 stars finally made it through the crux

I actually laid back the entire rail, rather than try to stem across and use the corner. I love the second half of the climb.
