Starts on a chossy face. As it gets steeper there's a ledge on the left, then a huge Texas-shaped flake left of the boltline and left of the anchors.

Fun addition to the Rhetoric wall. One of the better warm ups in the area. Be careful of the flake up top.

4 out of 5 stars second ascent dibs

The choss, the huge thin flake, and other elements will give some that creepy-in-a-good-way feeling.

BETA SPOILER: creepy pulling onto the ledge; creepy committing to climb off the ledge. Creepy if you pound the Texas-sized flake. Sounds like a base drum. Various developers took a look and think it won't break.
