This route starts down and left around the corner from Crossfire, on the south east face, off a terrace with a large rock to sit on and just right of Improbable. Head up 4 bolts and then left under a blocky roof then up past 5 more bolts. The chimney to the left is strictly off route. Clippig the 5th bolt and climbing past it, is the crux. Long draws on the 1st 3 bolts will help with rope drag.


9 bolts, chain anchor.

FYI- the chimney is actually to the left of the route. I agree that clipping the 5th bolt is indeed difficult/the crux. However, I did manage to take an intense 30 foot lead fall clipping the 7th bolt (was a GREAT soft catch) Haha... Should have analyzed the situation a bit better and moved my right hand to a better grip before trying to slap with my left. Panic is a bitch.

Very thought provoking route with excellent/technical movement.
