For a short route this thing makes you work. Steep, fingery and technical climbing to the same anchor as Kamakazi 5.8. Due to the fact that you can set a TR on this route by climbing a 5.8 it sees more toprope traffic than lead traffic.

Climb straight up the steep bulge of a wall. Careful clipping the second bolt cause there is no really comfortable way to clip it and a fall could be bad if you fumble it. After short but sustained climbing an awkward mantel (more so if you are tall) marks the end of the hard bit. Clip your last bolt and climb flakes to the chains.

Not the best route of the grade but if you like your sport climbing to be a bit bouldery this could be a good climb for you.


On the right hand end of the cliff just left of the easy corner of Kamakazi 5.8


4 bolts to quick clips.
