Entering the crux, a long reach at mid-height. Per...


This route is located just to the left of the dihedral to the right of Suspender Man, 5.11d. The climbing follows good rock and interesting moves to a bolt anchor. The crux is at an under cling move about halfway up. The climb then heads left of the last two bolts on the arete.


5 bolts.

Per TSG: currently, there is only 1 anchor bolt.

Staying true to the bolt line near the top would probably bump this to a hard 5.11.

Agreed. I didn't see the moves and went left, too bad.

This thing is so much harder than a 10. 11a/b for sure.

VERY IMPORTANT!! We climbed this thing on 9.20.16, and one of the anchor bolts is completely stripped. The nut slid right off, and we pulled the hanger off. We did not have the equipment to fix it, so we left the hanger at the bottom of the route and wrote on the wall "do not climb"...this route is currently not equipped with proper anchors!!

Still only one anchor at the top of this route.
