Overview
This stout 5.8 with steep and intimidating cruxes between good ledges is more appropriate for 5.9 leaders. It?s like climbing a staircase with all the steps overhanging 10 degrees with a mixture of well-protected

hand cracks and wild stemming moves. Use slings on most pieces or face paralyzing rope drag. You can toprope with one 60m rope if belaying up the 3rd class. It?s also fun to toprope the face?using some creativity you can find fun 5.10-5.11 face moves. If raining, this route can be dry if there is no wind.
