Description 

Sustained climbing, but you knew that because you are at The Pile. This climb is a lot easier (off-route) if you get your feet on the left of the arete. Enjoy the pump.

Location 

The leftmost line on the main Pile wall.

Protection 

5 bolts to ring anchors.

This route was put up in 1993 by Bob Caldwell. This is a fun route. Give it a go.

Must do route in the S Curves area, going off route is very easy tho try and avoid going left around the arete. Extremely pumpy (like everything at dog pile)

This felt much harder than most 10a's in BCC.. Huge jugs but the pump destroyed me.
