Description:

This climb is a wild ride! Start to the left of the flake that's left of Blonde Ambition. Climb this up to a bouldery "barn door" slab move, up to a shallow right facing dihedral. Climb up and out of the dihedral in the crack, then onto a thin section before a roof. You can possibly wsling the small pine out to the right before pulling the roof. Pull the roof and go up into another left facing dihedral with amazing jugs out on the face. Continue to the top.

This was exciting. The crux is wild and pumpy. Great climb.

5 out of 5 stars Dynamite Lead

There's not many things more satisfying for me than coming back to a climb that shut me down the first time and leading it clean. This is a fantastic climb from start to finish, with excellent pro and multiple cruxes. Probably among the top five for the grade at Sunset, a real must-do!
