Description 

A good route and probably one of the easier 11b's in the gorge, as it is not very sustained. Climb up a few bolts on a face, go left under a small roof to gain the arete, and fire the crux section on the arete to go to the top.


Location 

This route is toward the far left and of the main Purple Valley amphitheatre and is on a right-facing arete. It is the left-most sport route on the wall, just left of the small but deep alcove capped by an imposing roof and Fist Crack known as "Burden Of Dreams."


Protection 

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Really fun route. Most of the climbing is not 11.b but the variety of moves flow really nicely. Getting out on the arete and over the "bull" is the crux and are 11.b movements. Tons of fun

Great feature to climb. Looks really nice from the ground and the holds are all there.
