This is the big, obvious overhanging route that follows the steep wall, cuts right to a hanging dihedral, and goes all the way to the top of the cliff left of "Staying Power" and "Sparkle in the Rain". By the looks of it, it has been recently retrobolted. This route is now equiped with big, modern, black hangers. The route has seen little traffic, despite beeing a superb, long, multi-cruxed line that can be defined as "adventure sport climbing". I broke off a huge basketball-sized jug way up high, and cleaned a lot more of the route off, so now it should be safe, but use caution, as this doesnt see very many accents...it also definitely fits in with old school Shelf ratings, have fun!
It is left of Staying Power in the big, overhanging, roof sector, about 40 feet left of the Sureal Estate Wall.
Bring 14 draws.

I attempted this route a couple of weeks ago and bailed off the quicklink that has been sitting on it forever. Besides the moves in that area being incredibly hard for an 11d, the hold you use to establish in the dihedral kept breaking off on the right side. I'm hoping to stick-clip my way through this route one day and give it a thorough cleaning, but if anyone beats me to it, you'd be doing the community a great service. The route is incredibly long and looks to have great potential.
