Awkward start leads to a few tricky moves up high! Harder and wider than it looks from the ground. #3.5 and #4 camalots essential.

You need a couple of #3s (new style Camalot C4) just for the first 15 feet or so..Backcleaning the first in the middle of a 5.9 offwidth did not look too appealing so had to back off..

Actually down low you can get a .4 or so in the right crack and save your larger stuff. The OW is not 5.9 once you get a chance to explore all the relief both inside and out of the crack...what a fun climb!
