Description:

Retroed, this is a pretty serious lead. Boulder past a difficult move to gain a ledge, make a weird lean out left to clip another bolt "ground fall" Ascend the roof, making a dificult clip and cruise past the easier face to the cold shuts. Pretty hard for the grade. 60 feet. 5.11b/c

4 out of 5 stars Was my first 5.11c onsight until this stupid website downgraded it.

Very fun route! Like Horst said... it felt hard for the grade, so quit downgrading it to a 5.11b you d-bags. :, (

3 out of 5 stars Fun lead

Thin moves down low lead to fun roof, dihedral, and slab climbing above. Stick clip the first bolt or have some attentive spotters when starting up.
Getting to the roof can be a fun semi-dyno or tricky high stepping, depending on your reach and height.

4 out of 5 stars Nice climb

Blew the onsite by stepping the wrong foot over the lip of the roof (i.e. already past the low crux).
Good climb though, felt pretty stout for 11b
