Description:

Variation of Brain Teaser. Don't traverse right into small roof crack. Cater guide calls it 5.8, but it feels the same as the 5.10a minus the one face move by the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars a bit heady, but good climbing

Not as runout as it says in the book. Good gear up over the triangle roof, then left and up. Needs 2 #1 camelots in that area. A bit hard for an 8.

4 out of 5 stars 2 of 4 this half-day

Very nice crack features, very slopey top-out. Overhangs a bit and did on last day of three-day trip, so was pumpy and a little heady for me, but it is all there. Very good climb.
