At the crux.

This high-quality power route is one of the best of its grade at the Tower, perhaps second only to Shipwrecked. This route shoots straight up the center of the Frog Prince wall, beginning atop a boulder on the ledge. A couple bolts of relatively easy, sequential pockets lead to a powerful crux two-finger crank just below the lip.


2nd route from the left, between Frog Prince and White Queen.

This was my first 12c (ever). On the day I sent, I drove down from ABQ with my GF specifically to send this route. When we arrived, I discovered that I had neglected to pack a harness for my GF, who was new to the sport, and owned none of her own gear. Undeterred, I tied the free end of the rope to the massive boulder at the base of the wall, clipped the Grigri in, and she belayed me off the boulder.

This route has an awesome sequence through killer pockets and edges. Though it is not a long route, it has definite appeal within movement.
