The route climbs some red slabby rock to the left of the prow for two bolts before switching to the face on the right. The climbing on the face is steep and crimpy as you follow small edges to the anchor. The crux is around the 4th bolt, but the difficulty does not really ease till just under the anchor.


You will find this route sandwiched between two offwidth cracks. Wide Pride to the left and Burly Man to the right. There are two lines of bolts here. This is the right line of bolts with coldshut hangers. The route on the left is a 5.12.


5 coldshut bolts to a two bolt coldshut anchor.
