Description:

Starts 30 feet left of One-Ten on a corner with imposing looking roofs. Climb past a detached looking block and up under the first roof. Pull through the first roof (crux) using big moves; will feel much harder than 5.9 if you are under 5'7". Cruise through the rest of the roofs to the final "stand up" move and the anchors. Abundant gear and awesome exposure makes this a climb not to pass up.

Descent Options:

Bolted anchor
