This well-protected face climb ascends the brown face visible in the just under the letter "M" of "KING DOME". The first 3 bolts are spaced about 4' apart, and the crux is between the second and third bolts. A fourth bolt, located up and right, protects the upper, easier section. There are no fixed anchors for this route, so bring a few TCUs and/or sling a flake if bringing up a second.

Descent: walk off to climber's left.


4 bolts (3/8"), pro to 2" for the anchor

A great climb that is very well protected, but not over bolted. This is a really great and very sporty climb. This route is also very easy to TR by scrambling up the left side (although gear is needed for the anchor). Mar 6, 2017

The name of this route is actually a bastardized version of "Cosmic Dance of Shiva". Feb 17, 2006

Myself and two others recently gave this one a shot. To no avail. I do not see it as a 5.10c and am perplexe I agree the crux is between the second and third bolt. Oh how I agree! I did "Stitch" the thing on a top rope two days back and have the moves now. But I question the current rating and think it more to be in the higher 10's. May 19, 2004
