A super classic! Move through low roofs, then up to an overhang. Move right, and up a thin crack to a slab up and left. Finish on a great crack up high with lots of exposure

5 out of 5 stars Dynamite!

Finally got around to leading this one, it's as great as I remembered. A true Sunset classic.

4 out of 5 stars Classic

A 2ft. runner on the pro beneath the 2nd roof was not long enough. Ended up with wicked rope drag for the rest of the climb. Glad we used Denmark's 70m rope for the climb. A 60m would have been cutting it close!

3 out of 5 stars One of the more cruiser 9's in the area

A lot less in your face than some of the other 5.9's in Sunset, make sure to use long slings and protect accordingly when pulling the roof to the right side. Also, care should be taken when mantling above your pro in the last 20ft of the climb.
