Comments: This is a sick route, totally solid at 13a and much harder than Warp Factor I would say.

Comments: This route is all time, but way soft for 13a, more like 5.12+ Classic steep edges on granite.

Comments: Mike, the bolts are a bit close together, but without any one of them you would deck from every crux, so I think the locations are fairly reasonable. They were also drilled from stances on lead.

Marco, I top roped a direct start today, foot traversing in from the thin arch below Shark Tooth Flake, it went at about 5.11 and a bouldering pad at the base should suffice for protection. I also top roped an additional 10ft or so of face climbing above where I traversed to the jug on the FA. Hopefull... more >>

Comments: Just skips the crux of Ecocide by using the extreme left edge of the Goldfinger shelf, then reaches up to the better holds on the arete where the crux of Ecocide ends.

Comments: I replaced the second last bolt so its a bit better now.... It was a bit weird climbing the route and finding missing hangers.

Comments: Yes, it is an unknown gem. It probably has never been repeated, but I plan to go up there as soon as the weather gets good again and lead it. I just cleaned it off and cleared the access trails over the past two days.
