This ultra-classic rig offers up a sinister menu of thin edging followed by steep resistance climbing through a bulge.
When you're shakin' out at the midway point, imagine soloing that shiz like Bachar did...
9 bolts to mussy's.

Interesting to see this bad boy uprated...
Perhaps even better than the Bachar solo of this is the downclimb of "Xpressway"...

According to Marty, this was upgraded when a key hold at the crux broke.

A fine example of Gorge 5.12. The bottom sections vaunt distinctive face climbing with fun—even intuitive—sequences, and the top starts the pump-clock with a vengeance. One of my favorites, both for its varied climbing and stunning location.
