The crux is the overhang near the beginning. If it wasn't for that, it would probably be an .8 or the like.


This is the second route to the left of Bad Faith. And counting the unfinished route between them, it's the second route to the right of Little Big Wall.


5 bolts & a set of chains; don't fall after the 5th bolt, OK?

Good warm-up. Kind of a one move wonder. It would certainly be better if it were a little longer I think.

Fun roof. We stick clipped the second bold and John felt the holds got kind of small near the chains.

One of my favorite climbs on Membrane Wall. Feels more like a 5.9 than a 5.10. Skip the third bolt, the location of the bolt is terrible.

Great route! Technical, balancey start, then a big move and a satisfying roof pull. Would have loved to mantle at the chains and keep going. Easy .10a once you've figured out the opening sequence, .8-ish after the roof. Still quite a bit of snow here as of 3/27.
