Sport route before several trad lines. Easy and enjoyable steep climbing on big holds that will have you wondering how is this 5.11a, but towards the top as it becomes more vertical you will say: oh, that's why.

Fun route top to bottom, will defiantly be around four stars after the last of the crispies fall off.

Top to bottom? Rappelling again?

Yeah it's pretty futuristic. You downclimb the route while clipping into the quickdraws.

Thought it was going to be the worst of the three but definitely the best.

Super fun! Thought it was pretty mellow for an 11a.

Easy climbing on interesting holds to a crimpy crux right at the top. Feels easy if its not at your limit. The last ten feet is definitely not 5.10 climbing. Pretty clean now but still not as good as whipstocking or other **** 11a's imo though

I thought this was the best of the three routes on this section of the wall. Fun moves!

Climbed this on 04/23/2016, a hornet was building a nest at the fifth bolt. I threw some rocks at it until it flew off and then knocked the little nest down. Ruined my onsight.
