This route is published in Ben Schmitt's Elevenmile Canyon guidebook -- which I highly recommend. The route climbs well-featured rock with a crux up high that requires a balancy move on small edges. It is a challenging but well-protected climb for someone breaking into leading 5.9 sport routes.


This route climbs the arete between "Death Star Compactor" on the left and "Adult Supervision" on the right.


6 bolts to chain anchors.
