DescriptionP1) Start 15' left of a huge left-facing corner and climb to a high first bolt. Above, sporty face moves past three more bolts lead up and right then back left to a 3 bolt anchor on a nice ledge.
A 1" piece can be placed under a flake on this pitch too, so keep your eyes open.
P2) Climb off the belay past a bolt then up face past several horizontals and some exciting moves to the top and another bolted anchor.
Descend the route in two (2) raps with a single 60 meter rope or longer; don't try this with anything less than a single 60 meter as the distance from the first anchor to the ground is about 100'.
One of the better routes in the entire Comic Book area with it's variety of moves, excellent positioning and just enough spice to make it memorable. Easily three stars out of five.
