This route is just right of Idiot Savant, start with a right hand sidepull and a small left hand crimp and climb up the several overhangs to the anchors at the base of the large roof.

I have no idea how to grade this route, it has some powerful moves and some weird, tweaky pulls. It could be 12c or 13b depending on your style. Don't worry about that... enjoy the climb, it's a nice addition.

A small disclaimer: this route was bolted with the intention of linking it into the route to the right the "Life After Death" project but climbs wonderfully as a route of its own. It is a bit of a squeeze job but is an enjoyable endeavor. For full points, stay on route and don't bust out left into Idiot Savant.

This finishes on the same anchors as Idiot Savant.


It is the 2nd route from the right of the wall.


5 QDs plus 2 for the anchor.
