Description

Use small stoppers or cams for the first 25ft up to the first bolt. Make a clip at a poorly placed bolt under the roof, then crank up. Veer left to the finish of Shimmer.

Protection

QDs plus thin pro for the first 25 ft. Shares same anchor as Shimmer.

This route is pretty fun. I found that you can skip the trad gear by using the first three bolts of Bolt Cola, until the bolts on simmer start. Jan 1, 2001
If you skip the trad gear and use the first three bolts of Bolt Cola, be sure to bring a longer runner for the third bolt to reduce rope drag. Oct 21, 2004

Not as fun as Shimmer, IMO. After I pulled the roof, I found myself bushwacking to the anchors. Nov 15, 2007

I enjoyed this one. Maybe because I enjoy any route that I can place a black Totem or maybe because pulling the roof was fluid and satisfying on decent jugs. Over the roof got a little weird, but was fine. 7 days ago
