Mixed face and crack climbing on slightly overhanging section of the wall. Hidden edges in the crack make this climb seem harder on on-sight.

5 out of 5 stars Sparkle and fade

This climb is a mix of left right left, crack, lie back, smear, and of course overhung pumpy. Definitely worth the climb!!!!!!
