Very hard. Grade is unknown as many holds have broken since first ascent.


1st climb on the right side of the crag after the large crack on the left.


4-5 bolts to sport anchor

Umm... the grade is known. 13+

...and it's on the left side of the crag. Not the right.

Barracuda is exceptionally powerful and unrelenting - the only rest comes at about half way, everything before and after is physical and big. The start is a big campus move (but doable at my height of 5'9). I felt the crux came just after this...setting up on an undercling/gaston with the left, then crossing to a slopping rail with the right hand, and then setting up for a lunge to a really good hold (your one rest). If you're looking for pure power get on it.
