Description 

Another killer stem line in the Lower Gorge! Thin, but doable moves open this amazing route, after which the difficulty slowly builds as you climb higher. The crux comes high on the route moving past a flare protected by an old fixed pin. (easily backed up)


Location 

In between Cry of the Gerbil and Neutron Star.


Protection 

Thin. Bring lots of 00 and 0 Metolius sized cams and your quiver of RPs. 0-2 Metolius cams for the opening finger crack. There are four old, slightly manky pins on the route and each can easily be backed up by small (but bomber) gear placements.

The pins seemed alright to me. However I do agree that backing them up is worthwhile and easy enough to do
