KILLER GOOD! This is possibly the best 5.12 route in Hawaii. Stick clip the 1st bolt, and pull thin moves to a tricky 2nd clip. Pull the lip (lower crux), not missing the hidden undercling right at the base of the lip, and move into a no-hands rest in the middle. Pull strenuous and big moves through the middle (2nd crux) and then get yet another no-hands rest. Last, fire super-fun crack moves over the last two bolts to the anchor. This is a great first 5.12 lead.

This would be ultra-classic at any sport crag, fun throughout.

Tough bottom section with a good rest right after pulling the bulge to a fun bit of side pulls, pinches to another great rest! after that navigate crimps to flat ledges and this baby is done! east to recover on fun climb
