Located in the middle of the Long Wall. A bit of loose rock low leads to great holds and climbing higher up. This route used to have left (11a) and right (11b) options after the third bolt, but the hangers on the right have been removed.

4 out of 5 stars Topaz

The bottom is flaky (and tricky), but after the third bolt the rock is better and the climbing is quite enjoyable. Good holds are always waiting to be found when the going gets tough.
