Make crux moves off the large flake block, then continue up the thoughtful and excellent brown streak and upper dihedral. The crux is a balancy sequence once you step left away from the dehedral about halfway up.


This one starts directly above a detached block at the base.


8 bolts.

Lots of very thin holds that don't look permanent. Also there is some very large and very loose blocks at the start of the upper dihedral. While the climbing is fun (not great), the rock quality takes away from the overall quality of the route.
