Description:

A nice undercling start to a ramp with pro behind the flake. Climb the face up and enter the crack at it's lowest point. Can be jammed, layed back, or partially face climbed. A really nice route. Loved it.

5 out of 5 stars fun

A fun top-rope. Had anchors setup for Dihedral, so was a little off-angle. Not sure if I did the "proper" finish, since I had to veer right at the top to where the top-rope was setup.

Definitely a fun climb, with some interesting moves -- but there was always a hold there when you needed it.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: johnspokane on 2007-04-12 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Finally

This route captued and tormented me for over a year, top roped it many times. I finally got the guts to redpoint it. First piece was under the first roof which was scary, even though the first moves and the ramp are super easy. After the lower roof the scary part was not falling through the first crux, if you do you'll hit the ramp! Ouch!
