25 feet right of Buffalo Crickets is this striking line of isolated shallow pockets and crimpers. Start up the through the first 4 bolts of easy iron rails and get a quick rest. While recovering, scope out your path of least resistance and try your luck with the sustained and heady crux. Try and rest at the hueco and hope you remembered to bring your traditional skills for the finish.

at least 13+, maybe 14-, boulder problem is around v9, whats left after much broke is solid enough for a few sends, super cool movement
