Overview
For a long time this was considered ?the most challenging 5.10c in Yosemite.? In all honesty, the climb is 5.11 and the rating has recently changed to reflect that. The challenge is a very difficult offwidth pod leading to an endless off-finger lieback. Begin up the steep corner with perfect hand jams and great edges for the feet. The off-fingers crux section takes pumpy straight-in ring locks, but is usually liebacked.
