BETA PHOTO: Spencer cleaning the holds on Temptation (5.11a)

Description 

Start a few feet to the left of the arete. Climb up the blocky bottom to a very small overhang when it becomes crimpy. Once here, move towards the left and resist the urge to use the arete.


Location 

On the North side of the Island block. Right side.


Protection 

2 top rope anchors at the top, as well as a solid tree.

I found the holds from about half-way up to the top to be pretty mossy, which made the climb much more difficult. Most of the holds at the top are slick, slopy, mossy crimpers.

This is a great climb, difficult at the top.
