This is the next huge arch up hill from Hyena. First pitch about 10 d. A tough finger move or two midway up finishes with blocky hand moves. Pitch two begins with good feet and finger to off finger size. Past a short OW section -5.10 lieback, to the bulging hands crux section-10 C. A good rest leads to 10A OW lieback and the anchor. We did not do the third pitch, but this appeared to be mostly chimney with gear in the back. Above this pitch, a fantastic looking 11C escapes the arch--I'll be back

4 out of 5 stars Wide

First pitch is longer and steeper than it looks but not too difficult. Second pitch has a wide flare that is short but a little physical then some good fist jamming. The third pitch is an overhanging bombay chimney that starts out easy but is really hard to exit. After exiting the squeeze you pull over an overhang and into flairing tight fingers in a corner. Excellent route. The rest looks like shit.

4 out of 5 stars Great

First pitch is pretty mellow with a few finger moves, 2nd pitch is straight forward with good gear leading to a short offwidth, and pitch 3 gets steep and sucks you into and akward bombay-ish chimney. The 2 11+ exit pitches were extremely wet and dirty looking.
