Description:

A fun route that starts with an undercling, then uses a big heel hook to pull the overhang. After that is a lieback highstep move to reach the stretch undercling at the roof above. Fun route, but easy for the grade. More like 11a.

3 out of 5 stars too bad I didn't have a big crash pad...

I'd rather done this w/ a big crash pad than w/ gear. Oh well. It's a fun .11 for the crag. Typical fashion for Minne, short and too short. A few cool moves and then you're done.

Have fun w/ your gear placements. :)

3 out of 5 stars one piece 35 feet.

My Cam was slowly rattling out as I pulled the bulge, be warned this is a commiting lead.
