Description:

This amazing climb follows face to a great ledge, then to a small roof. Then a knee-sized cracks takes you all the way to the top. Super fun, but slow going in the off-width.

5 out of 5 stars wide crack classic moderate

but can seem pushy for the grade if not used to wideness, need multiple knee-size pieces.

4 out of 5 stars Grumble Grumble

Difficult 5.8. The off-width ate my arms and left me struggling to find better body positioning all the way to the top. Once the sun hit this route it became greasier than a 13 year old kids pizza face.

3 out of 5 stars A couple of large cams (#4 Camalot) needed; a real fun route

Excellent route that has steep face moves immediately before moving into the offwidth. The offwidth isn't that bad (easy for 5.8) if you just heel-toe with your feet and bury your arms in up to the shoulder for some fist/forearm jamming. Gets steep again right at the end.
