Mildly technical climbing to a roof, followed by strenuous moves from poor feet to surmount the roof.

After the roof comes pumpy, slightly overhanging climbing until you traverse left onto the face after the fifth bolt. (If you go right at the fifth bolt you're on If I only Had a Brain.)

Easier climbing to the top with good pockets (and a surprise at the end).


Found at the right side of the middle section of the wall dominated by the huge roof.

This line turns the roof at the right side (there are two side-by-side bolts under the roof), just before a trough/corner. The line to the right (start of Protozoa/40 oz to Freedom) seems to always have draws on it.


8 bolts to chain anchor.

Fantastic route! Pulling the roof is slightly harder than pulling the roof on Gordon's Linkup, however, the head wall is a bit easier. Both routes are slightly harder than The Beckoning Call; which is also an amazing route. Do yourself a favor and go climb this route!

Very bouldery start that doesn't let up till about the 4th or 5th bolt. Get your fingers ready for what feels like a V4. Awesome climb.
