Continuously challenging throughout, this very nice route has a technical crux midway to a large ledge. From here, a tenuous balancy move up and right leads to the anchor.


Right side of the North Wall. It's the first bolted route left of the crack line, Absence of Authority.


Bolts with bolt rap anchors.

I never felt very positive on this route but it is a good route and worth doing. The crux is definitely in the middle and then you are rewarded with a ledge with some really good holds. If you stand on the ledge for a rest, I wouldn't climb any higher but try and traverse right on the thin edges at your feet before going for the chains.
