Made to be Broken, 5.10c

1st Pitch- 25m- 5.10c/ The start is not hard to find, just a little left of center on the tower face. Joe used sand colored hangers. The first two bolts are quite spread out. It is a hard move off the deck. Delicate edges lead to the first bolt. The space between the 1st and 2nd bolt would result in a decking if you slipped, but the climbing is much more positive than what you start out on. Eventually make a sharp left traverse through a scoop and up to a slight corner. Follow the corner as the climbing gets tough and cruxy via slopers to the station. Use shoulder length slings on the 2nd half of the pitch to cut down on rope drag.
