This is a must do for the area! Very unique climbing on a beautiful face with many eyebrow like horizontals. It's best to do this one in cooler temperatures. Start at the right side of the wall beneath a clean brown face with many horizontals. Climb up to reach an overhang and traverse right to gain a stance above it. Continue to traverse up and left. The holds will begin to get thinner as you proceed. The crux begins as you approach the 6th bolt and continues until just before the 7th bolt. After the 7th bolt, the climbing eases up, but the moves to reach the shuts are still thought provoking.
From the approach trail, head right. Continue along the cliff until you reach an obvious brown wall covered in eyebrow-like horizontals. This route is about 25 feet to the left of Macauley's Irish Stout, 5.12b.
8 bolts, shuts.

Great line, I might even venture to call it brilliant.

Beautiful route. Many thanks to the route equipper for picking such a unique line, not just bolting straight up. One of the best .12s anywhere in The New.
