reachy crux with bad feet at start. fun climb. crux move 23 not 21. finish on 21 jugs all the way up into roof with fantastic side pull crack at chains. stays dry in rain except for one move near chains but can be worked around.

Wow what a climb. So exposed with a magical view of the falls at the top, one stunning climb that must not be missed. I actually got scared on this one as I was standing on a thin ledge. a stiff 18 but true to the grad.

Excellent quality climb with fun moves, fun dyno. Would have been an onsight but I ran out of draws and needed to retrieve from below, also needed to clean holds.. had no time for a second run. Great fun, definitely one to repeat.
