The crux lurks around the long chain draw and pulls small crimps with smaller feet. A longer pull to a hold under the roof, then naviage the roof and finish in the in dihedral. Trad climbers often find this to be an easier route. This route has gotten harder due to holds breaking and being shot off by rednecks. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
