For some reason, this excellent route sits neglected in the middle of the most crowded 5.12 wall in the Southeast. Perhaps the guidebook's 3-star quality rating is to blame. Don't be fooled, this is just as good as the other routes on this wall, offering excellent stone, unbelievable jugs, and nearly 90 feet of engaging climbing. If this climb has a downside, perhaps its the brief nature of the crux section. This route is probably no harder than 5.11- to the obvious orange roof at 60 feet, followed by a relatively short, pumpy sprint up the slopey headwall. If there were an intermediate anchor at 50 feet, this would surely be one of the most popular 5.11s at the Red.
Immediately right of The Legend, beginning up the obvious left-facing dihedral. or, the next route left of Reliquary
