More tricky face climbing on perfect orange rock leads to a wild bouldery crux sequence out the roof. For the non-slabmasters, consider hanging the 2nd draw with a stick clip. Not recommended when the shower is "turned on."

This one is going to be a classic when people start to hear about it. Full of downright wild moves! Be prepared to do everything from mantle, sideways deadpoint, overhead heal hook, and other ridiculous fun junk, all on beautiful orange rock. Couldn't stop smiling after falling up this thing! Didn't find the third clip to be spicy at all but the second could be tricky if you're short or the draw isn't hung yet

We should all climb that route! You'll do things you didn't know you were capable of!

Asthetic line. Brilliant orange and yellow rock gives way to puzzling, yet elegant slab moves. A commiting and steep upper section brings on the burls. Can't stop dreaming about the movement on this climb. Needs traffic to clean up into a classic.

Outstanding climbing - slab techy, underclings, mantle, heel hooks, overhang, campus, boulder - so much good stuff!

Pretty much what everyone else said... This thing is super cool and fun, and then a bit wild, and then a tad bit burly, and then you are happy you did it. Go climb it.
