A future classic when it becomes cleaner. Solid climbing between great rests, has a little bit of everything.


Furthest to the right at the chocolate factory, just before a cave. Can be easily identified by the big "C" shaped flake feature about halfway up the wall

What a fantastic line. This climb has everything. Crimpy thin face down low, a couple of bouldery cruxes, great paddling up jugs, great length and exposure, sidepulls, underclings, pinches, and pump. Plus, you get to "top out" by mantling into a huge hueco to clip the chains, where the view of the entire Chocolate Factory horseshoe is before you. Do it.

This line could be the coolest route I have done at the Red. Very, very long with a wide diversity of movement and holds. Hard sections, no hands rests, every type of hold you could ever want. Climbs all the way to the top of the wall with amazing views from the upper hueco of the entire chocolate factory. So freaking good!!!
