According to Bob's book, this route was one of the first in the canyon.
It starts in an overhanging dihedral just left of the beautiful lichen-covered wall that hosts "Sitting in Limbo
" and "Cassandra
The crux comes at the beginning and involves powerful stemming up the overhanging corner to reach a gigantic pocket. The route above climbes up a pleasant lichen-covered slab.
This route was originally climbed on gear, which was very bold, considering the nature of the rock. It has been retrobolted...by whom, I don't know...and now should be a popular route. The climbing is excellent, and the rock is very good too.

One of the best routes I've done in the canyon. Highly recommended!

A great route that seems to rarely see traffic. I didn't do much stemming and instead opted for crimpy lieback. The slab above is very enjoyable with a balancy redpoint crux coming right before the top shelf.

Onsighted! Yes! I brushed all the holds on my way down. Hop on this route and help with the cleaning process, def worth doing.
