Tricky arete slapping just above the crux.

Description 

IDKWICIJKTSIMWITAML offers non-stop bouldering up a stunning prow of flawless rock. The movement is cerebral, continuous, and dynamic, resulting in one of the finest power endurance 5.14s on the Front Range.

The line has three distinct characters. The first requires burly underclinging to reach a strenuous shake. Next comes the crux--sequential edging to a show-stopping throw. Finally, technical, balancy arête dancing leads to the top of the cliff.

Location 

This is the next bolted route right of Ken T’ank, starting up a traversing undercling flake to reach the obvious, leaning prow left of the Semi-Automatic dihedral crack.

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Stick clip the second bolt.
