A very good route with very tricky sections. A hard onsight! This beta-intensive route begins with some sketchy climbing down low, but quickly becomes more solid. The crux involves some very powerful climbing off the right wall of a small dihedral. Power past this to some good holds and a needed rest. Then continue up a crack/flake to a small roof. Power over the roof on "hidden" pockets to the anchors. Search well, they are there!

4 out of 5 stars Great fun

Great movement. Use the pocket at the top to thread the rope through the shuts.

Tried this at the end of a LONG day and fell. Came back fresh and did it first try. Only one thing section in the middle, otherwise it's all there...
