This starts on steep juggy holds, then it gets serious. After getting established on route, get ready to smear, sidepull, and balance up the crack/seam on little nothings. I found the crux to be where the crack disappears and you go just left of the seam on a heinous face. Hand and foot holds are more like friction pads. From what I found to be the crux, there is no gear of any kind. If you are not solid at the grade, I would climb Spoon and TR this one. But it's soooo good.


This is just to the right of and shares an anchor with Spoon.


Wires and small cams plus more balls than I had.
