Description 

This climb is located on the sunny side about 5 feet to the right of where the trail joins the wall. Start on a detached flake and make a high 1st clip. The crux involves long reaches around a bulge. Good footwork is key.

This is definitely a tough 5.9. Reachy, edgy holds over a bulge. A fall on this route could be pretty bad.

You can make the start more challenging by avoiding the pocket far to the right, which is somewhat off route anyways. Makes the climb for sure harder than a 5.9.
