This was probably the hardest climb at Tahquitz when it was first freed. The start, in a bombay chimney, is unprotected and somewhat tricky. Next is an exposed step right (a #4 Camalot protects this move). A hand crack is followed by an awkward 5.10 move, leading up to a stance below a roof. The crux is a slanting V-slot, with a wild combination of stemming and face moves. An easy second pitch takes you to the top.


standard rack, including a #4 Camalot
