The two bulges are the crux. One big one low and a smaller one up high. Follow thin crack to the final face above. It needs a bit more pruning up high but you can easily avoid the thorny bush.


Right of Pepsi Challenge @ 15' is the left facing dihedral with the the two roofs.

This was a fun and challenging climb! I protected the first roof with a blue and yellow TCU. Rock quality was great. Big metolius rap bolts at the top.

Fantastic climb - powerful layback through first section but inobvious foot holds makes it easier than it looks from the ground. Some fun and interesting stemming higher up. Probably a little harder than 5.10a.
