Description

I believe this route is the first bolted route right of the arete that divides the main face, and 2 completed routes left of the obvious, left-facing dihedral of Chris and Pete's Wake Up Call. Stem/friction up to first bolt, then place gear in incipient crack. The crux is stepping back left from right groove with good nut placement onto the face to clip 2nd bolt. It has good friction climbing. There is a 2 bolt anchor. All the bolts looked new.

Protection

I used a #11 stopper, a #2 Alien, and a small RP, plus QDs.

Per Ralph Kolva: this climb has had some bolts added, I counted a total of 8 and the anchor has been updated.

This was a fun route. Some really good stemming up to the crux. The technical crux for me was getting to the second bolt, you can get good gear in before making the moves. The psychological crux was pulling over the lip standing six feet above the fourth bolt. Jun 26, 2006

New book calls this Stitch of Time, put up by K & K Hower in 1990.
This is a very interesting climb.

EDIT 2016: Someone added 2 bolts recently between the 1st & 2nd original bolts.
(So the 2nd and 3rd bolt are new.) Nov 10, 2012

Looks like this climb has had some bolts added, I counted a total of 8 and the anchor has been updated. With the additional bolts, it doesn't look like any gear. Apr 10, 2016
