Description:

Start in between Broemel's and Bill's routes through an overhang to some face moves that lead to a left trending flake. Lieback the flake (crux, gear is probably tough as well) and then trend right to rejoin Bill's route to the top. Can be toproped after doing Bill's route.

4 out of 5 stars lieback protects well

with thin gear, (Lowe balls or small cams), but strenuous to place.

3 out of 5 stars Not horrible but definitely maximus

That flake is puuumpy due to not having many good footholds for the lieback. Instead you have to commit to the full on Frankenstein lieback that I think would make punching in gear strenuous.
