Description:

Starts with first knuckle jamming (#1 tcu) with decent feet (for a 5.13), then widens to #2 tcu where it changes corners the first time. 8 feet higher it changes corners again at a small roof (crux). The angle kicks back here, until the calf-pumping stance under the large roof. Undercling out the roof (.4 camalot), to a knee-bar rest, then crank over the roof up the narrowing crack (down to #1 tcu) to the chains.

It feels easier if you do it right. Oh, and placing nuts on this route is a bad idea. My friend and I really wanted to do it, but we didn't have enough cams.
