Description 

Pass two bolts with red hangers to gain a finger crack. Follow the crack until it peters out, move left to a knifeblade, and finish on the ledge at the Fearless First anchor.

This line is badass. Really cool bouldery moves past the bolts and a couple stout moves between insecure locks. Highly recommended.


Location 

The left end of Sunday Wall. 20 feet right of Fearless First. Shares a two bolt anchor with that route.


Protection 

Two quickdraws, gear from fingers to tight hands.

Overall, this route is pretty cool, 5.11 ish after the second bolt. However, the bottom 15 feet is definitely harder than 5.11. I spend more time climbing in Eldorado Canyon and Boulder Canyon, but the start to this route felt more like 5.12 to me. If you start right at the bottom, you can traverse left, up, and then traverse right and left again through some very tiny hands, bad slopers, and absent feet.

I'm not a fan of ratings debates, but this route is 11b MAYBE 11c at most. Get on Bridge of Air and you'll know what 5.12a face feels like.
