Overhanging project that follows a very slopey lip to the sketchiest top out since the war of 1812. very sharp slopers and haggard crimps. Still a project but possibly a v5-7 depending on the beta. The Top out is incredibly sketchy and is probably the crux.


Start facing the "Subzero" route, spin 180 degrees and you will see an overhanging face directly behind you. Start with the right hand on the small crimp about a foot to the left of a large sloped shelf and the left hand pinching a very small undercling ( You may have to do some searching for this), continue along the sloped diagonal lip utilizing various crimps and pinches to top out at the peak of the boulder


1-2 pads, there is a tree that warrants some caution.

Just adding that after a couple of sessions projecting, the top out is definitely not the crux and instead I would say the first move is indisputably the hardest, at least for me.
