Description:

Slab climb from same flake as "T.J. Swan" and "Ripple". Crux is getting over the overhang, and small holds between there and the next bolt. Great climb. Topping out is easy. Must stand on flake and have a full 50 meter rope to complete.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

This was a fun line. A bit heady above the third bolt with the overlap behind you, but a short crux. Was thinking it was 8 before getting on it. Maybe a couple of 9 moves.
