AMH being lowered, showing the overhang!

Description 

A decent, fun - long - route with cool moves. The crux may be the roof and the bulge above the roof. Some rock of lesser quality intermixed, but still acceptable.


Location 

This route shares the same start as "All that glitters" but veers right at the fourth bolt. A 70 meter rope is required to lower off. Located on the East face of the feature that forms the Glitter Box (climbers left of "Eyes of the world.").


Protection 

Bolted (I think 12 bolts; I will check and update). Carabiners on quick links. PLEASE LEAVE THE anchor biners!

This climb and the new Totem Pole climb, Pathological Optimist, recently became my favorite for this area of LD. Wow, what a sweet route indeed, and while it's overhanging and delicate, the holds are all there and bomber.

This was a blast!! Thanks so much for putting it up...10c is a bit stiff for the grade tho...maybe 10a? Be aware of rock quality for sure, but it is all there! The kind of route you want to last forever!

Fun route! We did not have a 70 so we topped out and rapped Eyes of the World.
