Stick clip and get ready to stem and layback in the awkward dihedral, thin holds yield their way to sandy buckets, and thats only the first pitch. If you only do the first pitch, 5.12c is a solid grade, if you go for it all, it gets the 5.12c/d, more on the d side.


On the left side of Prudential find the obvious big dihedral that basically goes to the top of the cliff but is broken by a ledge. Third set of bolts left of Machine Head.


10 bolts

Way steeper and harder than it first appears. Prepare for powerful, technical, pumpy climbing, while doing splits.

finally tried it today! Mark put it very well... Steep and hard pretty much all the way! Super fun! felt full on 5.12d to me, i found the lower and upper corners to be equally difficult but in different ways... get on it!
