Description:

Thin and short. Just right of Lichen or Leave. Climb first 30 feet of Roux, then step on to face and climb very thin crack to shared belay with Lichen or Leave It. The guide book may rate it at a 10 but 11a is probably more accurate. You had better be good a placing thin gear.

3 out of 5 stars step up and figure it out quick

this one all boils down to that one hard move. 10c? not the way I did it. with greater reach maybe. bring your microwires and make a nest.

4 out of 5 stars Wow

Great route, although the crux is definitely harder than 10c, albeit short. Get in a good, solid piece or two after you traverse out left to the crack, because after that it's all micros through the crux, for the next 15-20 feet. I whipped once at the crux and sheared a #3 BD micro nut. Luckily I had another one right below it that held. Crux consists of cranking on a couple tiny, sharp crimpers with no feet.

Great climb once you exit Roux. The crux feels hard for the grade.
