Skye following, already past the hard part.

Description 

Basically a 5.9 with a 5.11 start; rumor is that holds have broken off that made the start more doable.

Starting at a low overhang, find a tenuous sidepull or two, mentally cross your fingers and throw for a real handhold about 5' beyond your reach. The climbing eases off considerably and continues up the face to the anchors.


Location 

Starts just left of Treehugger.


Protection 

5-6 bolts, bolted anchors shared with Treehugger.

Start is definitely much more difficult than a 5.10, gave it a 5.11a. Easy going after the first bolt, a long stick clip may be in order.

Definitely a nerve rattler until the 1st bolt is clipped. The climbing turns into a jug haul after the 2nd bolt.
