5 out of 5 stars badass route

Love the climbing up to the roof, love the haning boulder problem. Sieged it ground up, and TR'ed it once we got the rope up. Will be working my compression and core strength until next time. Long whipper potential getting through the crux.

5 out of 5 stars Wow. Incredible.

Been wanting to get on this climb since I started leading trad. Finally did, and it is pretty badass. A 5.9 hand crack leads to 5.10 jug climbing, followed by a 5.10+ stemming corner and hand traverse out to the lip of a roof. If you can recover here, then you might stand a chance of firing the V5ish boulder problem to gain a stance on the upper face. Hard crack/boulder moves above that for about 15 feet lead to the anchors. Will redpoint this season!

Excellent route with great moves out of the roof and on the upper face. I fractured my heel taking a big whip off the upper face a few years back, so it felt good to get redemption.
