The line ascends a 25 foot, 50 degree overhanging face on jigsaw style rock. The climbing is isolated and controlled with minimal feet and long reaches between half pad mini pinch grips. The rock is bullet proof. I climbed this thing last day/last try of the trip, topped out, and stared at the stars.
