Off the ledge and right of Remote Control is a 30 meter line the starts out by surmounting a small block with a bolt in it. This continuous route waits until near the end to deliver its crux, and like Ruckman says " you've got to believe if you're going to achieve". Lots of 5.11 climbing that gets thinner and thinner the closer you get to the anchor. Really good line with lots of continuity.


A dozen draws and a 60 meter rope.

I'd say the rating is spot on for this climb. It starts off on huge jugs and runs straight its entire length. Halfway up you can do a wide stemming almost no-hands rest just at the small dihedral. The crux is most certainly at the top where the pockets seem to vanish forcing you to crimp, gaston, and even pull two monos if you want them. More endurance than anything due to it's length.
