Crack in corner starts as hands and quickly turns into big hands. Somewhat difficult moves where the corner opens up and you have to climb over a large wedged boulder in the crack. Felt hard for 5.9, but it's only 40 feet so....


First climb left of Wavy Gravy. Corner that opens at the top with a boulder wedged in the crack.


Probably 2 each of gold and blue Camalots and maybe a smaller piece or two for the top.

Good two bolt anchor at the top. Also you can continue over to the anchor of the OW corner for a TR.

Felt very hard for a 5.9. Think more 5.10...short but it has some thin hands followed by wide hands. Not THAT much easier than wavy gravy for me.

Agree about feeling harder than a 5.9

As of 5/10 there is a name plaque at the base of this climb that says "Dr. Awkward, 5.9". Seems about right.

The gear includes a couple of #1 cams and a #2. #3 optional. Great lead if you have small hands!
