  • Description 

    The easiest line up the West side of Highlander Crag, Highlander runs up the slab toward a corner in the roof above. A fun high step gains a couple of good horrizontal jams from which the anchor is perfectly clip-able. However, with Alan around he demands an additional move up past the anchor to savor the final burly thrutch. Indulge him for the sake of the power buzz.

    Protection 

    Bring five draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

    A damn fun route with a fun crux between the the last bolt and the anchors.

    Strongly agree with Alan's demand of actually finishing the route. This was the hardest move for me. The upper overhang is like 3 consecutively harder, bouldery roofs with great jugs and cracks. Fun fun.
