Description 

A deservedly popular and possibly slightly sandbagged route. Steep sustained climbing on big holds.


Location 

From the first bunch of climbs ascend to the second tier (aka Impact Zone) and this is the first route you see right in front of you ascending an orange streaked face with lots of chalk on it.

Awesome route! Fun and pumpy with a "big" move super close to the top. The view is breathtaking at the top... tell your belayer to wait before lowering and take a look around! Definitely a must do.
