  • Description 

    For climbers that like technical face, this is one of the best. Fire in a piece of gear before the first bolt. Clip the bolt then fire left and up(crux) to a ledge. Move right to another bolt. Climb left then straight up passing several bolts and a great gear pod to reach a bolted anchor at 95 ft.


    Starts just to the right of Slippin into Darkness, beneath a bolt.


    4 bolts, tcus to yellow, small tricams, purple camalot.

    Super Fun route! Balancey and technical but everything is there for sure! Protects very well, bring small stuff for the top, and goes with just a little daring! For anyone who is into small techy climbing this is a must do! Less then vertical so it lets you take your time as well!

    Sustained technical climbing, awesome route. Almost every move is in the 10 grade.

    Fun for the grade, the crux seemed to be just prior to the first bolt. The rest of the climb was a balance act which seemed like moderate 5.10.
