A crux sequence pulling past the second bolt leads to fun climbing through the lieback flakes. The pegmatite can be a little crumbly, but it is kind of a fun route.

If you are short, be mindful clipping the 2nd bolt.

Eds. This is basically a retrobolting of a toprope line, Staff, with the exception of its finish.


This is about 10 feet to the left of Renounce Action.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Is this the same route that eventually meets up with Renounce Action anchors? If so, beginning felt much harder than 9+. Rock is sharp and crumbly with no solid holds, and clipping the second bolt felt like 10b/c moves....
