  • Description 

    This is the furthest left route and a crag classic. Start up a white slab on small exfoliating holds to a decent pod. From the pod climb up and right and then move back left to arrive at the right side of the black and blue streaks. Continue up the streak on amazingly solid and sustained holds.


    Furthest left route on the wall. Around 40' right of the center of the cave.


    10 bolts to fixed anchors.

    I think Jason Campbell got a flash on this one. Good looking route, glad people are making the hike.

    Wanders a little bit, kind of a gnarly slab to start - but otherwise it borders on perfection. Must do 13b, and tick off Day One while you're at it. Promised Land is amazing!

    Phenomenal climb. Felt easier than other 13b's I've done at Red Rock, but it's Limestone-totally different style. Heinous slab climbing for the first 15 feet, but you'll forget about it once you get to the "meat" of the route.
