Description:

Dead point start to balanced moves (crux) to arrive at clipping #2 bolt. Gain the first ledge, clip #3 then figure out the features to gain the stance for clipping #4 prior to standing on the second ledge. If you are tall enough, clip the anchors or move onto the face for easy climbing with the anchors at your waist.

4 out of 5 stars wild moves

Wild Moves on this one. Both the new routes look so-so- from the ground but they're great. Tricks to get it feeling 11b. The top looks easy; it's not.
