BETA PHOTO: Go up the rope line using good holds on the right ...


Climb overhang and corner. Block on the left is off. interesting boulder problem to easy face.


Left of Schizophrenia. Starts with the 5.4 route "Moderation," then instead of going up easy terrain on the right it heads straight up the face and overhanging corner.


TR, not much for a lead.

How close does this stay to the corner? I moved left through the overhang, and then slowly trended back towards the corner for the rest of the route.

I totally agree. Everytime I climb this I start on the corner on the right but move left across the steep starting face then back right to the corner (sort of) after getting established above the initial overhang.

Photo and description are correct. I make staying right of the the rope line on small holds thru the shallow left facing ramp to be 11d.
