Darryl Pion just before crux - cragcam


Climb features on face up to flaring diagonol crack, continue climbing mostly face features, but following crack up and to the right (mostly serves as an undercling) crux is getting above small bulge just a few feet along the crack, well protected with bolt. Continue under little roof then follow diahedral up to 10 feet to finish with 20 feet of bolted seam crack. Anchors present.
Route really needs to be climbed more for a good rating, 5.10c is what I was told but I think that may be a little high...


Small pro used down low to protect first move(s) then another piece at beginning of dihedral. Flaring crack and face up top are bolted.
