Rockfax Description
From the boulder lean right and pull into the curving crack then make a tricky layaway/pull to solid jams and easier ground. Step left to finish up slabbier rock. © Rockfax

Nice lead by Steve. Getting to crack was easier then it looked but the crack wasn't as positive as I thought it would be... Great route, felt like a hard 5b but maybe that's because I avoiding jamming..
