4 out of 5 stars Gordons

the flake was WAY easier than ppl hyped it up to be. the bulge is definitely cruxy though. run out below the flake then plug a #2 or 3 then crank through.

4 out of 5 stars Very Fun Climb

Bring some slings and don't place gear on the easy section down low to prevent rope drag. It's a long pitch, so be sure to use a 60 or 70 meter rope. A number 3 Camalot placed far out protects the overhang nicely.

4 out of 5 stars great climb

really fun and aesthetic....although i'd call it .10a, not .9- that undercling is pretty heady, even though its short.
