Description

Start between Working Man and Blackman's Burden, at a solid, left-facing flake that curves up and right. As the flake ends, move up a short face (crux) to the shallow dihedral. Stem and jam the dihedral to the anchors.

Nice moves, good rock, and only one relatively sharp hold near the crux. Almost a candidate for three stars.

Protection

7 bolts to anchors.

Pumpy and technical all the way to the flake where it backs off. I nearly got blown off this route from strong winds the day I sent. Luckily I tucked myself into the corner and waited it out. Super cool line. Mar 23, 2008

Super fun. Makes for a great companion route with the 10c to the left (Three-Quarter Ton?) Both comparable in difficulty but totally different style. I had an easier time on this one while my partner had an easier time on Three-Quarter Ton. Nov 21, 2010
