The right of the two routes on the orange wall. Start off a boulder and climb into nice balancey moves up to a bulge crux. Cleaning on toprope recommended due to the protruding iron jugs up high on the finishing slab.

Will probably add a cleaning draw to this one at some point. In the meantime a quick toprope lap is recommended to clean. Cool moves on solid orange rock.

I'm confused. How does lowering then TRing avoid the abrasion from the sharp holds? Why not clean on rappel? It'd probably be clearer if I actually saw the route, I suppose. Just curious.

cuz it's traversey and you swing around a bit when cleaning

A thought-provoking route with some cool moves.
