This is a tough lead. The moves at the bottom are hard. We found that if we stayed in the crack system to the right, it was better than trying to use the chalked up dubious pockets out left.

The holds around the second bolt are sharp and crimpy. It eases substantially after the second bolt.

Given the bawdy talk (made me blush) I overheard from a few female climbers on this route a few weeks ago, I will forever refer to it as "Copper I.U.D."
