FA: Paul DeLapp, Paul Sullivan 1993. PD led this route ground-up onsite and originally graded it 5.8. A hold did break at the upper roof crux bumping the grade up.

route climbs steep crack/corner past rock "spike". Pull through small roof and head up and slightly left over tricky rock. Then climb straight up, past second "spike" to roof (nice yellow TCU here) and through to anchors.

Super fun, a bit runout at lower crux. nice TR
