Really nice climbing! Climb the short corner to the crux pull for a 'thank god' jug then just romp up to the top.

NB: Rockfall on this route May 06 on easier upper section. Probably no change of grade, but take care.

March 2020: Dangerously loose blocks at half height and near the top (see image). They look like great cam placements, but the cracks expand with cams popping out under bodyweight. A big fall might dislodge one of these huge blocks, wiping out your pro (and your friend). Significant run out middle section without these for protection.

βeta: Hold after the crux sounds very hollow and seems to have cracks at the base, take care!
