Susan near the big crux move.

Description 

Start up "Hole In One" for the first 3 bolts. (longer draw on the 3 bolt helps with rope drag) Then head up and right thru steep huecos, turn the lip on thin holds and face climb to the anchors.


Protection 

8 bolts, closed cold shut anchor.

Nice route taking the right hand line of the 3 routes that push the roof. Seemed like a cleaner more direct route than "hole in one" to the left. Hung at the 4th bolt as it was difficult to release with my right. Shuffle of the feet a few seconds rest and bingo! Nice route, fun and would definitely do it again. By the way kids. I don't lead .11d. The grade is inflated. Sorry.

edit: Russ is sitting here and claims in old-skool fashion that I hung...therefore, I did not lead the route.

What a sucker!

Brilliant line! Fun and varied. Agree with Susan's beta that the route gets easier if you hang on it.
