Slightly overhanging sustained face climbing with a sequential crux. Get ready to crimp on this one.


On the narrow west end of the Pinhead Wall. Starts off a broken block and climbs the face left of the first weakness you come to after coming around to the west face.

Second best route at the crag. Crimpy but not sharp.
