Steep and broken face moves to the sweet corner. Very cool tips to second digit leaning layback locks to a steepening good finger section to the rim.

Again, good rock and good movements...

Footholds seemed to appear just when you needed them. The start was scary and detracted from the route. Glad the anchors were placed on top to avoid the choss.

Maybe its finger size dependent but man this seemed harder than 11c. Proud lead for those the wander on down.

IThe start may be a bit scarey but atleast the start is mercifully short.

Objectively: The start is 10-15 feet of unprotected climbing on moderate to good quality rock with a 5.9 friction traverse move. At this point your feet are maybe 5 feet above the bouldery ground below and you can be spotted well by your belayer. I found the start interesting, significantly below the grade of the climb, and safe.

Don't let the start deter you from getting on this classic finger crack!
