Description:

flake traverse left then move up into a wierd slot. then a nice lieback to nice rap hangers. a serious lead for the fledgeling 5.10 leader. a fall getting into the lieback will send you for a swinger. (Added by virginiapine) Liebacking not necessary for long; climb it to see what can be done! Make sure you have bomber gear below the 'beak' - falling from above and ripping gear would mean breaking you into two on the boulder at the base with its angled edge pointed up at you!

Fun diverse route. Didn't lead but felt pretty comfortable. Probably some awkward fall potential.

4 out of 5 stars nice warm up!!

gear seemed kinda suspect in slot before you turn the upper corner. after i turned the corner, i stopped and strenuously placed gear so i wouldn't hit loose sharp flake at bottom of alcove. seemed like serious consequences if you fell at the crux. james from utah belaying.
