Description

Climb the face right of "First Strike" to an arete, then over the roof right of a prow to join the ""First Strike" at the last bolt. Climbing directly to the first bolt can be sketchy, but it is easy to pre-clip by coming in from the left. This is shown as "A Sheep in Wolf's Clothing (5.12a)" in William Prehm's photo topo.

Protection

Six bolts to a rap anchor (shared with "First Strike").

Felt kinda contrived up at the top. Interesting movement and a hard pull over the roof puts you using some of the top holds of first strike.... Jan 11, 2009

Really fun, balancy moves down low on this route. The crux is a big right hand move to a ledge near the bolt above the roof. I'd give it 4 stars, but the rock is pretty bad down low unfortunately.... Apr 13, 2014
