One of my favorites on "the circuit", this one took me an entire season to tick. I recently broke the crux hold from a pizza crust pinch to a pencil pinch. I'm quite sure it is AT LEAST V6 by todays standards, making it harder than the grade given by Curt in 1989. This was definitely a futuristic problem for the era before crash-pads. Very nicely done Curt

This turned out to be a nice route/problem after removing a large amount of moss and lichen. First TRed then bouldered. I'm not sure about the exact date I did the FA.
