The beginning section of the route, pockety, sharp...


Similar style to other routes in the area, the line consists of hidden pockets and good crimps. There is no definite crux, and there seems to be a variety of ways to get to the top. After the sixth bolt, the terrain eases up to 5.10a but is runout to the anchor (about 10-15 feet.) A little scary, but no ground fall potential or bad swings.


Located on the Swiss Cheese Wall, which is the main wall to the left of the Heaven Wall. This route is one to the left of King Coral.


6 black homemade hangers and 2 bolt anchor, (a little run out from the last bolt to the anchor).
