Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


The route starts on a technical slab that requires balance and friction to move up. About 4 more bolts of easy climbing (5.9) lead to the first crux. More easy climbing leads to a high undercling below the last bolt. A short traverse right, a difficult high step, and a long reach to a bad sloper makes up the final cruxy moves.


Route is located immediately right of Tangerine Dream and left of Vertigo


13 bolts to open shuts. May want to use long slings if toproping.

Beware DEATH BLOCK at the top of the route. The mandatory undercling just below the last bolt is a time bomb waiting to happen. fun route otherwise.
