From the high point in the corner, prominent crack system on the left guarded by a tree. Also, just to the right of Mouse Tracks (11a). Has very sustained climbing with two prominent cruxes. The shallow dihedral towards the bottom and the apparant face above. Both aren't as bad as they look.. but, ask yourself if this is really 5.7. If so, I have some land to sell you. Also, WATCH OUT FOR THE PIGION in the large portion of the crack right before the finish. It can definitely change the onsight to a redpoint. Enjoyable moves throughout.

4 out of 5 stars Jam and go

Just stick it in there and don't think twice. I had a really old guy lament his partner's inability to do this climb... and then I had the chance to go through this lovely, if taxing, climb.

This route is a very very nasty 5.7. If you're like me, you will be pumped. And you might cry.

The first and the last part (face) are the hardest but the middle is awesome i loved it. I rested 3 times, but i finished the route in about 10min. I would do it again and hope to flash it.
