The fourth route on the 5.10 wall, between Crazyfingers (5.10c) and the trad line Synchronicity (5.11a). Originally a trad line, this excellent route is now well protected by bolts. Climb through pockets to a crimp crux, then pick one of several variations from the last bolt to the anchors.


5-6 bolts to anchors

What was Greg and Tom's input/position regarding the retro-bolting of this route?

I think Terry Kindred consulted with Tom prior ot re-equipping. Not sure if Greg was asked.

The out right variation I belive is the easiest, with the straight up/dyno variation being the most fun for me(5.11a?).

a little beta for the red point: when you're getting pumped out about half way up or more there is an amazing horizontal hand jam to shake out on
