Description:

Blocky climbing on smooth pink rock leads to an obvious first-pitch crux (10a), which can be done a dozen ways, all of which feel wrong. The traverse under the huge roof is easy but airy (protect your second or get yelled at). New cold shuts mark the start of the second pitch -- the 10c wide-hands roof. Wild swinging for about 5 moves, then a tedious descent. No top anchors AFAIK.

4 out of 5 stars Super Fun Stuff

Tricky crux: good feet or good power worked for my friends and I. The second pitch is short and much easier. Look for the anchors on the roof.
