A very enjoyable climb that is the farthest left on the upper portion wall of the Pleasure Palace. If this climb were longer it would be classic.
Climb up the vertical face on bomber rock using small incut horizontal cracks. The horizontal running cracks offer great holds on solid rock. The grade for the climb comes from committing lock-off type of moves between horizontal cracks. The crux comes getting to the fourth bolt where another longer move requires commitment. Overall the climb has fun flow and great holds, if only it were longer...

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
