BETA PHOTO: Masked Bandit

Description 

Starts on the right side of a large, cave-like overhang. Make the strenuous overhanging crux moves to pull through a deep, narrow crack in the roof, then follow the crack up the left-facing corner past an obnoxious, multi-trunked tree.

The start is reminiscent of Tiptoe at Pinnacle.


Location 

On the right side of the large overhang where it meets the left side of the prominent jutting block.


Protection 

Top rope and attentive belayer highly recommended (suitable trees at top). You'd better be more than solid at the grade to lead this one. That first piece ain't easy and retreat is likely to be head-first.
