Description 

This route is two routes to the right of Stormchaser (the obvious line that follows the right leaning crack feature up the middle of the wall). Stick-clip the first bolt.Another powerful beginning on little crimps, sidepulls and underclings brings you to a good ledge and decent pockets but no footholds. Stand up and you're at bomber rest. Rest before tackling the final powerful 5.12 roof sequence and technical 5.11 headwall. Great sequential climbing. If only that rest wasn't there...

Protection 

7 bolts, open cold shuts anchor
