Description

This route is on the right side of the south face of Surprising Crag, just right of The Touch and left of Double Down. It starts at a corner whose right face is split by a thin crack.

Climb the face and crack past two bolts. You can use the corner left of the bolts or the hand crack right of the bolts; both variations are about 5.8. Just using the thin crack and face by the bolts is a lot harder (10 a/b).

Head to the upper face and climb steep rock past 3 more bolts. A 10a crux is at the next-to-last bolt.

This is a fun route with several variations in the lower section.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
