Description:

5.10 Trad crack. 15ft horizontal think-hands crack goes through crazy transition crux to become vertical 5.7 crack climbing for second half. Switches to vertical. Thick hands make it easier. Beta: find upside-down kneeebar for great rest. Can eat ropes. Route is also great boulder problem but has deadly groundfall potential.

5 out of 5 stars Never looks pretty, but

It's much easier when you don't have a rope to get eaten.

5 out of 5 stars finally

after trying this route unsuccessfully a few times over the past couple of years, i finally figured it out. none of this acrobatic inverted stuff for me. i solved it with a move that i've never had to do in 35 years of climbing!

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Funky wedge-the-head move. Ate the rope! Hard to grade... the move around the lip was cruxy 10c-ish... the weird move down low is hard to grade.
