Description:

Starts around the corner from Margin of Profit and about 20 feet left of Electric Rats. Pull up some steep terrain on good hold to a rest 15 feet up. Pull through the devious crux on finger locks and liebacks with iffy feet. Cruise up on 5.8 for a while until reaching a 10+ crux before hitting the anchors.

5 out of 5 stars One of my favorites!

Did this more than once cuz it is just quality. The crux is great followed up by some perfect crack climbing. Awesome.

5 out of 5 stars damn

so close to flashing. Stuck the ringlock at the top of the crux, but was sloppy on the feet. Good gear the whole way, the upper crack is really nice too.

5 out of 5 stars Fun and surprisingly safe gear for a 12.

The crux is a beast but if you have recently been on a bouldering binge it won't be a problem. The crack climbing is excellent for the entire route.
