Description:

Start in an overhanging handcrack just left around the corner from Slipstream. Gain a ledge and trend left following big holds to a right-facing corner and steeper terrain. Pull a quick 5.8 move when the jugs run out and clip the chains. Note: The initial 10b handcrack can be avoided by walking up to the ledge and starting there, which makes the route 5.6 jug hauling with the one 5.7 move.

Descent Options:

Rappel off of fixed anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Excellent and well protected

Starts off burly getting through the overhanging hand crack and then turns real easy until THE last move on the route which gets your attention for a second. A good climb to break into 5.10 (rated 5.10b/c in the Watford guide) because of the ample pro and quick off the ground crux.
