Description 

This classic route shares the first bolt with Dreamin' before traversing left and merging with Rude Boys just before the sparsely protected slab.

The technical crux comes immediately after the second bolt and a powerful lockoff gains the slab above the fourth bolt. Sustained face climbing on welded tuff past two more bolts and a fixed stopper leads to the anchor.

The 12b rating seemed somewhat soft relative to other 12b's I have climbed at Smith.


Location 

Prophet Wall


Protection 

Quick Draws for six bolts and a fixed stopper.

I was really perplexed when I first looked at this route. The route traverses between the first and second bolt but all of the chalk is well above the second bolt. Don't let this keep you from doing the route. The traverse moves are pretty easy and you'll probably end up clipping the second draw at left ankle height. Bolt placement seems a little odd, but it is nothing to fret about.
