This shares the start with Drill for the Thrill, then it heads right. It stays a bit cruxy for three bolts at mid route.


See the topo for location.


13 (or so) bolts.

I got on this route yesterday and was not impressed. Yes the climbing is hard and sustained but I thought the rock was dirty and the holds were sharp. Maybe if it got climbed more it would get better but there is no way this is a classic.

One of the most beautiful sport routes I've climbed. Wouldn't call it a classic, though. It is rather a retreat from overtravelled classics. From the point where it splits right and till the very anchor, not a single move is straightforward. Each one is unusual, insecure, and fun. Considering lack of traffic and chalk, it's a long puzzle to get to the top. Thumbs up for first ascent. It took some vision to see a line there.
