Description:

Wild gymnastic start. Around the corner from Aqualung (boulder down through the notch and follow path- DO NOT contour downhill below column at corner of Aqualung). Climb up face and ledges to small roof, pull roof and climb face above, staying over the line of bolts. Many people climb straight up from the second bolt and to the L of all remaining- this is 5.8 and not on route. Bad falls can happen sideroping this climb. Finish by pulling straight over the top two roofs to incredibly featured face and wonderful view at anchors.

Descent Options:

Rap or lower from anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Great climb!

Onsighted this the first time I tried it, this time a buddy had already set up a top rope, so I did it on top rope. Fun either way. There are some ledges near the top where you can take a breather if you need it. You may want to stick clip the first bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Fun Overhang Moves

Great overhang moves. Good 1st half climb that mellows out in the 2nd half.
