Climb through several bulges and several strenuous sequences before coming to a rest ledge at about the 10th bolt. A tricky move to gain access to the ledge marks the start of the cruxy climbing. Serious power and endurance is needed to work through the roof and remaining clmbing to the anchors.


Route is located to the right of Raging Raptor.


14 bolts to double ring anchors

The route is basically 3-4 boulder problems that get progressively harder as one climbs further up, with intermediate climbing and rests in between. The final crux is very unique and will likely put one in a position he is not used to being in on a sport route.

I do not agree with the endurance comment in the route description. There are plenty of chances to shake out during the climb, including a no hands rest right before the final crux.

It can easily be set up as a top rope by traversing right from Raging Raptor.
