A short left-facing corner past two bolts leads to a sloping ledge shared with Pleasure Dome. Clip the 4th bolt on that route (Pleasure Dome moves right) and continue straight up (crux) to a large sloping ledge. Finish up the featured headwall above past three more bolts to shared anchors with Groove Factor.


About 15' to the right of Pleasure Dome.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (shared w/ Groove Factor)

The guide book resulted in some confusion I find the route beta here better.

One of the anchor bolts is bomber. The other is super sketch. No turnable bolt head. Looks like a rivet and is very rusty. Very loose as well. Other bolts along this route were also loose upon looking more closely. Didn't have my wrench or I'd have tried to fix em. In the mean time, until that bolt is replaced I give this route a bomb. It wasn't even that good anyway.
