0ft. naw, it's about 40 to the anchors on chem studs. this does have a peaceful warrior vibe. somewhat sandy, loose, grainy rock, damp seep spots, small tricky-ish gear. these attributes really amped up the mental fortitude needed for this 10a. opening moves are tough for the grade. looks like you would need 1's and 2's but leave 'em on the ground. double rack from tiny to 0.75 camalots will do ya. all in all pretty fun tricky climbing on kinda crappy, manky rock, decently protected.
