Description

This is a good face climb that has some long reaches and tricky footwork. The holds are small pockets and cobbles that are just enough to get you purchase. It is definitely not an easy route compared to other 9s I've done. This climb is located just around the corner on the right (South-facing wall) as you enter the Dungeon from the North.

Protection

3-4 bolts to double anchors.

Another fun one here in the Dungeon. Beta - There is a little finger pocket in the depression that gets you past the first bolt....tricky. Dec 5, 2001
Definitely a fun and tricky 5.9. Don't sweat the high first bolt on this one - it's 5.4 or so to get to it. The crux comes immediately after clipping this bolt, and can be solved in two or three different ways. Apr 22, 2002
Only three bolts, I swear. But it's super fun and on point with the nine. May 27, 2008

Perhaps this route just doesn't play to my strengths, but I had a harder time with the crux on this than The Rack. I finally got it when I found the finger pocket, but it definitely didn't come easily. Maybe I'm missing something. Sep 1, 2008

A very fun route. An interesting, technical crux. Left me wishing for more. May 18, 2009
