Description:

Starts about 20 feet right of the Sunday Gardening/Infinite Pursuit corner and goes through a large splitter roof at about the 60 foot mark. Handjamming and stemming lead up to a no hands rest before pulling the crux roof. After the roof initially trend right but then head back left at a detached block to bolted anchors. Rated 9+ in the DCA.

3 out of 5 stars Roof Sucks

The roof portion sucks. It is wayyy harder than a 5.7. I would push to say it runs 3-4 grades higher. Other than that its a sustaining 5.7 with great gear places and typical T-wall cracks.

4 out of 5 stars Not as hard as it looks

A good rest before the roof makes it manageable.
