Climb up the triangular rust-colored face on excellent granite. Movement on Eye of the Tiger is cool, and the route is well-protected. The climbing gets progressively more difficult approaching the crux roof. Sequencing through the roof took some time to figure out but was kick to solve.


Start 15 feet right of Lou Reed under the rust colored face.


Seven quickdraws, one slung long for under the roof, and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

I left a quickdraw on the top bolt today. Please leave it if you climb. I plan to put up wire draws on the top 3 bolts to make it easier climbing as well as easier to clean. I hope to have those up in a week or so.

This is a really good route on neat rock. Having the draw hung at the last bolt is a great help, otherwise it is a strenuous clip. Good work on this one, Richard, it is perfect for a summer morning.

Awesome, super fun route! Definitely not 12c, maybe 12b.
