DescriptionThe most difficult line up Red Slab, this fun route starts thin and ends thin. In between, there is an easy roof and somewhat-more-difficult roof.
Start directly under the first bolt (which is intimidating, but worth it). As you continue up the holds get bigger and you start breathing more easily.
Just before the roof is another thin section: staying to the right of the bolts is easier, but staying directly in the bolt line or a little left is thinner, slightly harder, and quite fun.
The well-protected roof itself is kind of tricky, but a willingness to commit on small holds will see it through.
