This climb starts about ten feet left of 'Breakneck' and 30' right of 'Triple S'.
Follow flakes and edges to the obvious right facing corner. A #5 HB and a small wire are your only protection until you reach the corner where a #2 Camalot comes in way handy. Follow the corner up and past two bolts to the second right facing and slightly overhanging flake (TCU's).Move right to jugs and last bolt,make a long reach to a jug. Follow the corners to a two bolt anchor.


The obvious right facing corner and face ten feet left of Breakneck and 30' right of Triple S.


Gold camalot is the biggest piece you'll need. Bring a standard Seneca rack including HB's.

The move around the second right facing corner seemed harder than 5.9+, because I couldn't get any traction with my feet! Got a .3 C4 in that corner and took some falls on that :) Fun climbing.

At the first right-facing corner, it separates at the bottom into a detached flake...which is loose. I suggest you don't pull hard on it.
