Oh my, what a climb. Get to small side pull on right, small crimp left, bump left foot up. Very reachy crimp over top of slopey edge and up to positive incut. Then up to two horrible double digit crimps to side-pull. Feet up, high right, hip turned in, up to bad left sloper, up to okay right sloper, then right crimp with small dyno to huge left jug at chains. Dont use Street Fighter block. Feet feet feet.

Very excited about finishing this route. Fairly manageable with the right beta. Required some power through a difficult move on upper section and dodgy feet on the lower, but its all over quickly.

I don't know why I struggled on this before. Reach for the second better crack with right hand in lower section. Up to chicken heads. From undercling, reach for jug. Keep left and use block fo mantle with right foot. Half a minute and its over. This route is over-graded. Rating it 21.

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.
