DescriptionIt starts with 10 feet of easy slab up to a chossy seam where the first two bolts are placed. After passing the choss, it gets solid and you have to decide which great holds you want to haul on, till you get to a bulge at a seam just below the anchors. Pulling the bulge is the usual Iowa hunt for hands and feet, followed by clipping the anchors. Except for the second bulge this is a stiff 10.
LocationTo the right of C N red is a shorter wall with a crack through the middle. This climb is the farthest right on that wall.
