To the right of the old route on the Sore Thumb. Goes up big crack, switches to the left and up seam. Goes right at the first bolt, then up thin seam to anchor.

Larry and I put this up in three days. It took me nine tries till finally the redpoint. The route is fun, safe, and super engaging.

This line is very inspirational. Steep but the falls look safe.

I think this was put up on lead with a set of doubles. Outstanding Lead Curt.

I would rate it but I haven't climbed it. I'll have to wait for my next life. I bet its hard!!?? Mar 24, 2005
I was there one of the days Larry and Curt were working and bolting the route. It is a stunning line on a stunning formation. Keep up the good work guys - awsome looking line. Dec 18, 2003
