A super fun moderate that starts with some face climbing to a high bolt leading to a steep hand/fist crack. Follow the crack to its end at a ledge, step onto the face following a flake to a second bolt. Crystal pinch your way past more bolts to an exciting arete finish. You may want to sling the top horn for the follower to protect the final moves before the traverse to the anchors. Numerous cruxes and amazing exposure at the end.
Opposite side of the formation from Thrain and Thor. Next to an unfinished Shaffer project with two bolts.
single rack from a red c3 to a #3, 6 bolts, bolted rappel anchors, optional double length, single 70m.

Loved it! This line is sick! Great pro through the cracks and the bolt placements are spot on. Thanks for the super-fun route, guys! Keep up the good work!

sweet route. good right from the start going to the first bolt. 5.9+ seemed appropriate but that could be due to the fact that i suck at crack climbing but the route seemed to stay on top of you the whole time and didn't really let up until the very end. what ever grade this settles in at it is definitely worth getting on it.
