One of the better routes at this crag. Looks like there are a few potential routes just to the right of this one in the 11 or 11+ range (not the "unfinished route"). Pretty nice looking tall verticle-ish wall.

Start goes to the left instead of up the crack. There's no "dynamic" move to be found, using the right beta - just a couple long-ish moves.

merrick is like 5ft. When we put it up, not dynamic for me either, but for some it is...

Amazing 10. Climb it, love it, give it 5 stars. The reachy moves at the bottom are not bad, one required a little bit of a hop for me but forget it, route is awesome.
