Another Portland classic, with continuously interesting and varied moves on superb rock. Start at a vertical wall directly below a clean-cut corner in the upper wall. A hard move to a good hold gains easier ground that leads to the midway horizontal break. Pull up leftwards into the base of the square-cut corner. Climb the corner steeply to a difficult exit out right and up to gain the finishing headwall.

As good as they get. Hard crux and then sustained after that to the top.

I totally agree. Crimpy lower section where good conditions are a distinct benefit. Totally amazing upper section with a heartbreak last move.
