This thin delicate slab that will test your balance and footwork. The difficult sections are in the beginning (1st and 2nd bolts) and the upper fourth of the route. Because there are long runouts between some of the botls leading this route is a serious undertaking. Do not lead this route unless you are totally solid at the grade! Great toprope after leading Dominion (10a). Some of the smaller holds on the route are loose and I knocked down some small rocks while climbing. The belayer should have a helmet for this reason.


Botled face just uphill of the Fracture


8 bolts.

Great face climbing with several distinct cruxes. Knob climbing up high was really cool!! Great TR after doing Dominion.

Leading this route is not so bad, but it probably *almost* gets an 'R'. I remember one foot/hand match move on the upper part that felt pretty committing; otherwise it seemed relatively safe. I don't think you ever get more than 10 feet above the bolts until the relatively easier top part (5.9ish, fairly runout).
