Beautiful edges on bomber rock. Starts at the same place at Flashflood. Hit a bouldery crux after the 2nd bolt and a couple more hard moves in the next couple of bolts. Cruise to the last bolt on more very enjoyable edges. Then pull one more hardish move getting to the anchors with the last bolt below your feet.


9 bolts, anchors

Definitly a classic, but easier than some of the other classic 5.11c's in the gorge.

And harder than others. Venom, Wrath of Khan, Living Dead, Tsunami, From Chocolate to Morphine, Flex Your Head all come to mind.

Very sustained until the 4th bolt. A bit heady to the 4th considering your not that far off the ground. But much easier after that. And what a finish!

I would love to hear which 11c's are harder in the gorge. . . Maybe being tall hurts you on this climb???
