Comments: The moves are a bit awkward b/c you have to go deep for good jams, but good fun and a nice lead. A few lost cams Wise use of runners is a way to keep your gear.

Comments: A great lead! A #3 camalot protects the bulge move if you can slide it high enough w/draw. Fun jams and jugs.

Comments: The stick your hand in crack & bleed beta is not true unless your jams slip then it might be possible to tear some skin depends on slippage. The roof has a perfect ring lock that will allow you to reach a little higher for that perfect hand jam and then reach for the second perfect hand jam, put toe in crack (easier than using the face me-thinks) and surmount the roof, cruiser to the top. Fun, great lead!

Comments: The hanger has sharp edges and if the rope would get caught on one of the two halfs during a fall - the rope could get shredded or worse - cut. Belay off to the right side backing up with a number 2 Camalot. Great Route!
