A fun climb that mixes thin face climbing with a bit of an arete.


Starts in the break in the big block to the left of Moral Inventory.

If you TR, USE A DIRECTIONAL, or you are at high risk of swinging into the high boulder to the right. If you lead, be prepared for a very cool move over the 2nd bolt, which would fit nicely on a 10d. Perhaps this route is rated 9, because someone thinks it should be an average of a 10c/d move, with a few more 10 a/b moves, along with a pile of 5.6 moves.
