8m. Although short-lived, the thin snaking-crack on the front of the buttress has good moves and good runners.

the mantle on small edges is a great move,gear well below your feet.

nice moves at the start and the mantle - deserves more attention, considering how short the walk-in is from the path!

Ridiculous sandbag! This is E2 5b in the recent Roaches BMC guide. Don't know about that, but HVS 5b implies that it's safe. It definitely felt way harder than the E1s that I've done. To fall from the crux at the top would be a deck unless you had a sprinter. Great route though.

i solo this instead of taking the stairs, stairs are for losers

Scraped all the crap out of the crack today (took 5 minutes with a nut key, why don't more people do this sort of quick clean?) Now plenty of placements for small cams. Probably just E1.
