This is an old project just right of Microchip and just left of Wind Machine. Climb the easy slab to the headwall, then start trending left into the crux of the route. This is a short and bouldery route with a hard clip, this route climbs well. It is still a little dirty, so get on it and clean it up!
This is in between Microchip and Wind Machine.
8 bolts, bolted anchor.

Unfortunately I broke a key hold off at the crux probably bumping this route up in the 13- grade range.... Sorry.

Curious where that broken hold was, anyone know? Whatever the case, this one seems the hardest on the wall in its current state. This one probably has the best rock of the hard routes at this end of Highlander.

SteveZ, the broken hold was a nice, sloping jug right when you popped over the lip and started making the moves to the left. I think I held it with my right hand and bumped my left through the crux to the nice edge at full extension. It most certainly makes this route the hardest at Highlander now.

I tried this one today after climbing micro chip... it's way harder than its neighbor. I feel the crux is quite burly. It goes but is more like V7/8. Look forward to hooking it up.
