Description:

Tunnel inside the wall to place to place the large cam in such a way to protect the obvious wide crack. Downclimb and fire the challenging slot via foot smears, chimneying, and deep side pulls (5.10ish). From the no hands stance follow the crack to a roof, traverse right to the corner. Sling your gear long here and venture out on the hanging, overhanging face (2 bolts). Pull the small roof above (over gear) at obvious jugs then clip two bolts for the crux thin face above the ledge.

3 out of 5 stars Finally!

Rope drag at the crux was heinous! I thought I might pull myself off making the last clip, then blew both feet as I grabbed the plate jug. Awesome.
