Description:

Just left of Pearly Gates, a slanting hand crack leads to a steepening ramp. Fire through the steep opening moves and finess your way through the rest.

Descent Options:

Rap with a 60m, possibly with a 50, not sure. Otherwise, walk off the back.

5 out of 5 stars The start really is the crux

The guides call this a '5.9+'- which means the start isn't a 5.9 but the rest of the route is true to the grade.

4 out of 5 stars What a start! P+R's Pain and Revenge maybe a better name....

Talk about a humbling start! Still a wild climb and well worth the effort.
