Overview
Mega runout lead or convenient toprope set up by walking into The Alcove on exposed This difficult and quality climb is easily toproped after climbing The Footstool or by scrambling exposed 5.3 to the anchor. Sustained and fun 5.10 and easy 5.11 moves on shallow dishes and thin face lead to a baffling crux that feels harder than 5.11.
