Making the clip just after the dyno on Particle Ac...


A local classic that starts by climbing a bouldery face (5.11) past a bolt to a ledge. Wander upwards past two more bolts until just below a small overhang/overlap. The moves past the next bolt are excellent and involve a long reach/dyno to a distant edge and then moving up to a delicate and somewhat heady stand-up move with holds that seem to face the wrong way. The final moves to the top are enjoyable and largely uneventful.

Suberb moves on this climb that requires a number of techniques to succeed.

Originally this route shared the start with Suspended Animation, but now features a two bolt independent start slightly left that takes you directly up to the third bolt.


Between Straight, No Chaser and Suspended Animation and behind a large pine tree.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap
