Description 

Classic multi-pitch sport route on chossy limestone. P1- first two moves are burly then mostly 5.8 to a seated belay in a cave. P2- traverse out right to an exposed 10c move on the roof and on to another seated belay in the shade. P3- sustained 11a climbing with burly moves on good enough holds. Stay left and up. Good exposure. Many aid here (goes 10c on aid) and ladders are sufficient. Rappel and enjoy the view.


Location 

On Urban Assault Wall. Follow the bolts leading straight up to the cave. Rappel down and hike out.


Protection 

Normal multi-pitch sport rack. Bring a couple of long slings for the P2 traverse. 60m rope minimum. The route is protected extremely well. Bring a helmet for the initial belay. You WILL send rock down on this route. It is possible to aid P3 with ladders.

P3 can be sent free. Real hard 11 perhaps? Bolts are good on otherwise chossy-feeling rock. Be prepared to pull off rock.

P3 is hard 5.11 sent free. Bonner hand jam in the crack last of the bolt-line. Good bolts near chossy chossy rock. Good new boots right next to bad ones.

Ladders not necessary for p3. You can pull on draws post the hardest move through bolt 2 of 4.

Chain at each belay. Make double sure your partner knows safe multi-pitch technique.

Hard moves on chossy, dusty rock off the deck to start the route. 5.11 something.
