3 out of 5 stars Harder than it looks

3rd bolt has a balancy 10c type move. Finger jam the horizonal after the 4th bolt to make the move to the undercling, thank you, hold. I clipped the anchor beaner from there, top is very slopey. Had to hang to figure it out, but doable for us 10 something climbers.

4 out of 5 stars jug jug jug crux anchors

Long moves between jugs lead to an undercling finish. I have seen people clip the chains from the undercling although strenuous. One more move to the slopey top.
