Description 

Above the middle terrace is an obvious clean cut red corner with a thin crack. Scramble up 50 feet to belay at the base of the corner. Climb the corner. Rap anchor at the top. Thin moves and thin protection but great climbing


Protection 

up to #2 at the top RPs and other smaller stoppers

I though this route was a solid 11a, though the book gives it a 10c. Thin moves with amazing stem/friction moves in the crux. bring some small cams and stoppers. We placed a #2 in a pocket down low and also another #2 at the top after the crux. Great route. I gave this route 4 stars because it was a challenge in every aspect, Gear, Climbing, and setting.

I thought the climbing was fun, but this route is really all about 1 move. A star or two, but nowhere near as good as Out of Control.

I have alittle trouble giving this 5.11a....it's realy just 1 maybe 2 moves....but they are 5.11 moves. So I'll call it 5.11, but I wouldn't argue against someone who said 5.10+.

a #3 in a pocket down low is pretty nice to have- i didnt like any of the options for the #2...but if you're up there, you should have a #3 anyway since you are probably doing/have done Out of Control....
