This stunning sport line climbs a water streak on widely varying terrain. It's almost as if someone took a stunning, old school line from Ceüse or Verdon and plonked it on the Backside. This is a stout line, and it will test your head, stamina, and footwork.
After climbing one of more sandbagged 5.10's in Smith, tricky crimping leads to arete where a rest can be found. A tricky clip and some intense pulling on side pulls and pockets leads to a dash to the next clipping stance. Rest here and get psyched, if you screw up the sequence pulling on to the slab you'll be clocking some air time! After a much needed respite, the final two bolts tackle a physical overhang on good holds.
Above Hemp Liberation
13 bolts. Long sling on the 4th, you shouldn't need to unclip the bolt above the roof as the book says.

Take the grade with a grain of salt. Probably harder than Churning or Kings, easier than Go Dog Go. 12c at Smith means different things to different people.
