Description 

A near continuously challenging route from beginning to end. The crux hits at the 3rd bolt with bulge moves using two odd hueco-like features with cracks inset in them. Finish with another hard (11-) move near the top.


Location 

Starts up past the second "landing"/platform going up the Shipwreck trail.


Protection 

Bolts (aprox. 6) and Rap Anchors.

Fun route. A few key holds lacked visible chalk from below - making it hard! :) The move above the last bolt seemed every bit as hard as the crux down lower to me!

Very cool. Don't expect it to be over after the crux.
