Me climbing, Karissa belaying


The crux is getting off the ground. Place a piece as high as you can reach, then high-step and lieback-jam to establish yourself in the crack. Follow this semi-sustained bit, trying not to cheat when it turns into a bit of a rampy dihedral. Then you're on a ledge big enough to sleep a small army. Continue up towards the orange face split by an obvious, slightly overhanging crack. Using face holds and jams, send this short bit of sweetness until you're below the belay ledge. Pop some gear, mantel up (5.8), and you're done.
