Description:

This beautiful sport route is steep! Follow the South Fork trail almost to its end. A massively overhanging hueco wall is on the south side (almost always shady). Namaste is the bolt line with the steepest start---almost as steep as Hell Cave. There are no 5.12 or 5.11 moves. The technical crux is a 5.10d crank before the fourth bolt. The pyschological crux is 140 feet of continuous overhang. A must do!
