Arrogant bastard topo

Description 

Boulder up onto a small ledge, clip a bolt and then climb thin face up to a huge, hanging flake which is liebacked up the overhanging face. The crux comes above the flake, where a tricky sequence on smallish holds gains a jug and somewhat easier climbing. Stays interesting all the way to the anchors, especially if pumped.

For the grade as good as any route at the Pinnacles, with steep climbing on good holds and fun moves throughtout.

Location 

Right margin of the face, just right of Vertical Epic.

Protection 

7 bolts, chain anchors

One of the best at the pinnacles. (All of the climbs on this wall are pretty quality). The tricky crux leads straight into sustained climbing until the top. Crux required a few attempts.

Lieback to a ledge, then make a steep move to an undercling; a strenuous (thankfully short) overhanging lieback leads to a horizontal crack, then a crux bulge negotiated by a crimp and a sidepull, there's some strenuous stuff on good holds following this then beautiful knobby face/steep slab.

It's a great routes and deserves more traffic, if the comments here are any indicator.

Absolutely amazing!!! Super line! Solid for 11a....sustained and fun. Not really "overhanging" ...more like slightly overhanging sections.
