  • Description 

    Starts in a 5-easy corner. When the corner/crack system ends, continue straight up on 5.11 ground past some bolts to a bulge. Solving a v4 boulder problem gets you over the bulge and clipping the chains.

    Location 

    Located in the far right end of the Crab Eyes' west face.

    Protection 

    Bolts and a couple cams in lower corner if you feel like it.

    There is a direct start to this route that makes it 5.13 I did via 2 variation. One directly under the first bolt climbing a hard boulder problem. Fall potential.
    2 climbing the right arching crack less of a fall potential.
