Description [Edit]

This route is located on the outward facing rock just right of the deep canyon area that has the overhung orange face on it.

It is sistinctive because it has a diagonal rightward facing dyke for the first 10 feet of the route, and a bolt near the top of it.

Climb up the dyke to the first bolt, and then over a bulge to the next. After standing up over this bulge, all holds dissappear. Tiny pinches and delacate footwork on a fairly steep slab are all you get until just after the last bolt, where there is a large ledge. If you're over 6 feet, you're done here. If you're not, there is one more excellent commiting move to get you clipped into the top anchors that's absolutely terrifying.

Protection [Edit]

6 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Holy shit!! this route will test your tips,both hand and feet, and keep you wimpering like a little beeatch to the anchors. DAMN I love this route. The first time I did this route I was going from the 3rd to the 4th clip( crux)and realized something was'nt right with my shoes. I had just gotten them resoled from Marmot and figured it out, they gave me two left feet, that's right they put two left soles on my mocs. So there I am holding onto nubbins the size of erasers with two left feet. But I got it, as I cursed the A-hole who did this to me. the moral: Don't get your resole done at Marmot. Sep 8, 2004
