Unusual short boulder problem at the beginning - and turning into a slab later. Quite fun, and was worth doing.

What a great route!

Good route! I like the crux sequence. It took us a few to unlock.

I loved the route! Loved the crux. Great slab climb.

i thought this climb was excellent. fun start over a few bulges, then later comes what i thought was a very obvious and fun crux section... do you go left, right, or straight up??? all three are doable (tested all 3 on TR), but i thought only one was a 10- move once unlocked! it certainly wasn't the way i first chose!!! happy guessing!

This is an interesting climb. For some reason the red seems to have a lot of good 10a slabs.

If you go right to clip the bolt, then traverse left, instead of downclimbing a bit, the crux is HARD!

definitely a worthwhile route. very fun tall slab with cool moves!

based on chalked up holds, looks like a lot of people climb into the hueco and traverse right to start -- do that and you miss a pretty cool little boulder problem.

NIce route for the new 10 climber that has a boulder problem, roof, edges and a traverse... I liked it better than the 9 to the left (Slide).

Awesome route. Super easy 5.8 start after the boulder move and it really challenges your footwork and ability to read a route later in the climb.
