Access Issue: A portion of the wall is closed due to Indian rock art. Details

Description [Suggest Change]

Expect delicate steep face climbing which culminates in a distinctive crux move near the 4th bolt as you grapple with the thinnest climbing on the route. Once past the crux the difficulties subside and it's easy to the top.

The great rock, well-protected and engaging moves and location all combine to make this a fun route for the grade. Three stars out of five.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located down and right from ZZZZZ and just left of a large flake leaning against the wall where Blue Diamond (aka Shock to the System) is located.

Protection [Suggest Change]

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all 3/8")

Very well protected, excellent sport climbing. While there are .11 moving through the 4th to 5th bolt, I felt the hardest moves were after the 5th. I literally slid off the moves more than 10 times. Conditions were a bit poor as the rock seemed quite greasy. Oct 20, 2008

I agree the first few moves past the final bolt up that slab were very thin and the crux in my opinion - the moves below were just technical and didn't require pure friction. Jun 13, 2009

I'm with Murf on this, probably around 11d. Apr 14, 2015
