Overview
This sustained finger and lieback crack is mostly 5.9 with a distinct 5.10a crux at the top. Tricky gear placements 20 feet up make this route only suitable for confident 5.10a leaders. The unrelenting last 40 feet put your endurance to the test. There are a few ways to climb the crux, none of which are obvious. Descend by rappelling with two ropes. The route can barely be toproped with one 70m rope. Otherwise, use two ropes to toprope.
