Description [Edit]

This is a very dynamic stemming route up an interesting left-facing dihedral just to the right of Soft Cell (5.10c/d). Lots of fun and a good workout. The rock quality is great and a decent is easyily made from the chains atop Soft Cell.

Protection [Edit]

There is a fixed pin and one bolt on the route. Standard rack from 1/2" to 3".

Been leading trad for about three weeks and this was my first 5.10 on gear. It starts on some unique features and moves up to an old rusty bolt, it would probably hold but I definitely didn't want to fall on it. From there it moves up into some cool stemmy moves in a steep and shallow crack with few opportunites for bomber gear. I placed a really sketchy #2, moved up to where the shallow crack widens and placed a decent #4, after that I ran it out about 15 feet to top out. There's opportunity at the top for another #2 but I was pumping out and scared shitless so I just scrambled for the finish with some pretty hilarious style. Was super fun but probably not the best break into 5.10, definitely would have liked more opportunities for gear. Nov 12, 2016

Fun stemming, gear is tricky, bolt hanger is rusty but bomber, hollow flakes to start. Jan 15, 2017
