Description:

Climb past small cave to overhanging face. Excellent route. Texas Climbers has it as a 5.9 - I haven't climbed it yet, so don't have an opinion.

3 out of 5 stars Good warm up

This climb is a good warm up for the area. There is a spot where it gets a little negative and you have to work your way over the bulge.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

Easy to get pumped around the 3rd bolt without proper foot placement. If this route is the one I'm thinking of (guide is very confusing on this wall), this is a sandbagged 5.9. 10a if you ask me.

5 out of 5 stars nice mild overhang jughaul

It felt 5.9; compare it to KB-9 for instance once you wire both.

Beta Spoiler....get right-foot on the ledge below and right of the anchors.
