Grade Route

Diverse climbing with multiple cruxes.

FA: Erik Ferjentsik, 2008

Tough start (consider stick-clipping). Then comes the hard stuff.

FA: Vu Nguyen, 2015

Small holds lead to a great rest in a cave. Then the tough stuff begins.

FA: Erik Ferjentsik, 2008

A paucity of small holds leads to a nice rest, though well before the cruxy dynamic roof!

FA: Erik Ferjentsik, 2008

Crux passing the third bolt, as well as through the roof. Climbing to the lower anchors goes at 6b+.

FA: Erik Ferjentsik, 2008

6a+ climbing to the lower anchors before a powerful roof.

FA: Erik Ferjentsik, 2009

Furthest right route. Begin on a sharp slab and work towards a rest before a powerful roof.
