This route climbs the smooth face right of Delila (5.8) in three pitches, although many rap from anchors after doing the crux second pitch.

P1) Start by climbing partway up The Escaltor (5.6) and setting a belay near the start of Delila. P2) Launch up the gradually steepening face past 8 bolts and a prominent knob to bolted anchors at the base of a right-facing corner system. P3) Continue up the easy corner (5.6) to the top.

Descend from the top by rapping from anchors atop Rap Flake and then downclimbing The Escalator; if doing only the first two pitches rap to The Escalator and then downclimb that route.


bolts, gear to 2.5"

Superb line, that, with the passing of each bolt the moves get a bit harder and harder and steeper and steeper. At the time, the belay at the end of the described P2 was gear. Nice to hear that it now has bolts for the belay.

A very well protected introduction to the Suicide 5.11 face climbs. Bolts at the top of P2 are a welcome addition.

I hope this excellent line gets climbed more often than the number of comments would indicate. Clean, continuous, well protected, and maybe the easiest 11c in the area as I recall. Hat tip to the pre-sticky FA party.
