Start the same as BT Express, up the crimp face left of Primitive Paradox to a mantle. Climb up to the first shelf in the dihedral and cut left onto the face via good feet. Climb straight up past two bolts to the P1 anchor for Primitive Paradox.


This route has decent pro (after the first thirty feet), but it is rather technical and unforgiving. The crux is well protected. Small offset nuts and a rack of singles recommended...

The crux of this route is quite thin. The book gives it 11b/c, but those who have done it lately put it closer to 11d.

New fixed gear as of 2011
