Description:

Originally 5.8 A2, but now goes free at 5.12a. It helps if you are tall for the crux move. A great route to reach the upper part of the thumb. The 11d hand crack is awesome! Three or four pitches.

3 out of 5 stars Unknown?

Came to the thumb with no idea where the standard thumb was, so started climbing this route. When we got the 5.11d crack, realized we were on the wrong route, and aided it. This route kicked our asses, to be continued...
