Great warm up for the other climbs at the crag. Solid hand jams with ample features to smear with your right foot. The crux comes up high when the crack thins to tight hands. Very short.

This was my first 10a and is a great route to break into the grade. Short, splitter, and takes gear everywhere. The slightly wider middle section scared me, but those big-handed folks may find the crux up high.
