Third route from the left on the Bulge Wall, way around and left of the front side of Menses Prow. This is a fairly short route, but it makes up for its short stature with powerful moves on great rock. Begin with deceptively hard climbing to gain a rest at a horizontal break. The crux is the bulge above the horizontal (duh!). Lots of bad chalked holds, as well as an unexpected, hard-to-see, perfect mono, makes this a very difficult section to read. Probably a v4ish boulder problem. The mono is suspicious (perhaps an old bolt hole?), but I don't know enough about this route to label it as modified. It would be a pretty sick problem without it.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
