8m. A choice of boulder problem starts (both about 6a) leads to a ledge. An awkward and scary move up left gains a thin hanging crack, which leads more easily to the top.

Worth E2 - the mantle onto the ledge and move into the crack is about 5b with no gear.

I think the crack is the hardest part of this route. It is just awkward. The boulder problem start is not hard or reachy. The move to the crack is bold for E1. It is not hard just a little precarious

Massive sandbag. The move onto the ledge is protectable, but I thought the top crack felt like E2 climbing, and that's after doing a V3 start. God bless Curbar.
