The route starts near the right end of the wall on Invisibility Lessons. Once past the small roof of that route, go left on the face to some thin cracks which are then followed to the top. You'll find both crack and face moves in the 10b range on this route.


Thin pro to a 2.5 Camalot or equivalent. Small off-set nuts may help.


I've climbed this route three or four times over the past several years...always on top rope and always getting it clean first try. However, this October, I couldn't do the traverse moves even after several attempts. My partner who onsighted The Bendix Claws always failed on Invisible Touch's traverse moves. I think some holds have disappeared making it much harder than 10b. Maybe 11b?? The upper portion continues to be 10b and is super fun. Oct 12, 2017

I agree - this route does all of the interesting part of invisibility lessons and then throws in an exciting traverse and techy seams at the top. My favorite route on future games. Leading the traverse could be pretty hairy. Mar 23, 2011

This route is even better than Invisibility Lessons.First you do the crux of Inv. Lessons.But the route is only getting started.The traverse has good enough holds and the uppercracks and seams are excellent. Nov 8, 2005
