This long sustained pumpy route, has a few cruxes with thought provoking technical movement.

  • * Near the 3rd bolt a previously glued in hold appears to of been removed or broke off. It is possible that this has increased the difficulty slightly, as the routes 1st crux is moving to the missing hold. **

This route is awesome, and my opinion deserves just as much love as Pit Lizard, if not more. Great route!

I didn't do this one before the hold broke, but it didn't feel like the grade increased to me. No stopper moves, just continuously steep with incredibly consistent edges. You can milk a good rest just above the slight bulge halfway up. Better than pit lizard in my opinion!
