Description:

Starts on a ledge 10 feet above the trail. Exciting moves on pockets and a large horizontal break lead you leftward off the ledge to a right-facing corner. Head up the corner toward the massive roof above, but then take an obvious escape to the left across a slab to avoid the roof. Climb a thin crack and then straight up a somewhat grimy face to the anchors.

Descent Options:

Bolts and rings to rappel from. We made it down on a 70m rope. Will a single 60m rope make it?

4 out of 5 stars name just sounds nasty ...

when you say it with a southern accent. Proper gear makes a big difference on the crux - ledge fall potential otherwise. Cool moves there.

4 out of 5 stars Real good

An interesting blend of corner crack and face climbing with a bouldery start. Didn't have the right cam at the right time so I hung cowardly; cruise it next time. A 60m rope does make it to the ground.

Got back on it and gave it hell, really needed that one confidence inspiring piece...

4 out of 5 stars Intimidating lead

Denmark led this one onsight and in good style. The opening moves are pretty scary until you realize where the holds are and how positive the start can be. A couple of other spots on the route keep you on your toes as well! Maybe next time I'll have the guts to lead it.
