Bold, difficult, technical and involved. This is a stunning route to the top of the breathtaking Discovery Wall. Expect small grips, thrilling run-outs and unique movement. It will leave a lasting impression on you, I promise.

Start the same as Martini, when you reach the chains traverse right and establish on the ledge. Don't clip the anchor of Martini. From here fire into the sustained difficulty to the very top, there's one decent rest but otherwise it's on til the bitter end.


Extension to Martini


6 additional bolts after Martini. 14 in total.

Much like many routes at the Fins, this is not a clip-up... you will be climbing between bolts, sometimes 15 or more feet. There's an easily accessible anchor directly on top of the cliff above this route if you'd prefer to rap in and hang the draws first....
