Description:

An outstanding route for its (slightly sandbagged) grade. Starting just left of Fanfair, a strenuous layback of a finger crack leads to a welcome juggy hold just below the high first bolt (stick-clipping is a good idea). From the top of the crack, continue up the face to the top using crimps and good but reachy holds.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower from anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Fun route

Start on a crack and reach for a hug jug. The rest is smoothe sailing.

5 out of 5 stars fun!

awesome start with a thank-god jug to clip your first bolt. the first bolt is high but use your judgement and skill on a true lead.

5.8+ (true lead) to * including first bolt.
smooth 5.7 after first bolt.
