BETA PHOTO: Bolt 1 of 16.

The longest route at the Homestead. Crux is before the halfway point, great holds to the top after that.
Just to the left when the trail hits the wall. Next route to the left of JBone Memorial Highway. Look up for the longest route. It ends on an inverted arete looking feature.
16 bolts to rings! You will need a 70 meter rope to be lowered to the ground or with a 60m you can lower to Rough Rider's anchors and then rap from there.

Great route, very sustained for the first 3/4 then a no hands rest to a cool steep section on huge holds.

Great route one of the best that I have climbed. I prefer the longer lines with harder moves at the top so you have to fight the pump!

Stiff for .11d. Crux 15 feet is in your face. I've done several .12a's that were easier than this route.
The top arete is no harder than 5.10 with big holds and great exposure.
Great route all in all.

Some beta lists this route going at .11d, some beta lists it at .12a. Not a huge difference either way. The consensus does seems to be leaning toward .12a. Regardless; it's a hell of a line.

Great climbing up a tall piece of stone to an amazing headwall consisting of serious pump and awesome exposed arete climbing! The crux down low made the onsight not all that difficult.

Seriously good stuff. Really technical and delicate climbing between bolts six and eight move into some .11 territory into a sit down rest and finishes with gigantic jugs. Highly recommended. If you are shorter definite .12a, taller people could be .11d.
