Route #111

Cool route. Worked on it with a stranger, sharing ideas and leapfrogging progress. The big central hold with a hole in it is fully untenable as a handhold. Bring chalk.

From the start position, move to grab the left edge of the square volume above the right start hold with both hands, matching right hand below left hand. Then, left toe up on the left volume, and press up through the hands until stable. Right foot to the start hold; the kneebar on the volume is great. Adjust hands to grab the small holds above the central hold and maneuver up. Grab the point (apical vertex) of the big top-right volume. Left toe on the topmost left hold. Move left hand to the finish hold and, terrified, follow it with the right.
