Description:

very technical face climb with many very small crimpers. This is one of the best routes in the canyon, especially if you're looking for a classic, long sustained route. Crux is very difficult right before the top. 60m rope is ideal. (mandatory). Monsell's guide gives it a .12d; rumor has that it was 13a until a female sent it. Hyer's new guide calls it the toughest 13a in the canyon.

5 out of 5 stars WOO!

Got on this first nearly 10 years ago. Finally sent after endless TR solo laps. AMAZING!
