Quality climbing with a committing finish. Begin up a steep, broken face using flakes and sharp edges. Moderate, fluid movement soon takes over as you pass a number of bolts. An ever steepening face concludes the route with a brainy, technical bulge being the final crux. Long and thought provoking, this is a stellar line that should not be missed. Stay strong and smart at the finish, don't bomb the exit.


This is the right-most bolted route on the wall, it is also the longest. Start on a small platform just above the 4x4 trail.


Eight bolts to a rap-ring anchor.

Mostly easy 5.10 climbing with spaced out bolts up to just below the headwall. The headwall is committing.

I have a feeling that this climb and the grades for this climb is confused with the one next to it. Collateral Damage feels like 5.11a and the headwall on this climb is 5.11c for tall people, much harder for short people.

imagine having to deadpoint through the headwall because you have a -3 ape index and your a little on the short side. this is 11c for some and def harder for others.

No one is getting the ratings confused. That's how Mike originally rated both on the FA, and he is only about 5'7". This one's original rating was 11b.
