Small holds and a powerful heel hook-Ed Strang on ...


The route climbs the overhanging arÍte above the Renaissance Wall. Start by climbing Lower Rosie or Asian Whore to the anchors. Continue past these with difficulty on small holds and a powerful heel hook to a good clipping hold. If you make it past this there's an exciting 5.12 slab to get past before you can clip the chains


Right side of Renaissance Wall


Bolts and lowering chains/biners

Warning: There is a large loose block on this just above the mid-anchors. It doesn't appear to be connected to the wall anymore only jammed in place. I would be wary of trusting it until I took a crowbar to it. The entrance into the crux still goes without using it. Above the crux there are several sketchy looking blocks as well, that would provide a nice rest, but look like they could rip off. The crux is certainly pretty cool and quite hard, but the rest of line needs some cleaning.

Cleaned the living-crap out of this route. There were some glued-on holds and lots of loose stuff--all gone. The route climbs differently now and I dont think the grade changed too much. Its actually a very nice line, we fixed the first 3 crux clips with steel chain/biners and it flows well. You will want to start on Lower Rosie to link into the 5.13 climbing, keeps the rope nice and clean.

That's a really high quality route. Thanks for cleaning off all the glue and loose stuff, Aaron.

Thanks for cleaning this one up Aaron! Went from a sketchy scary route to a great route. The crux is quite a bit easier and is now a good continuous line. High quality 13a.
