Description

According to Bob's guidebook, this route was one of the first in the canyon. Note that this route was previously listed as "When the Whip Comes Down."

It starts in an overhanging dihedral just left of the beautiful lichen-covered wall that hosts "Sitting in Limbo" and "Cassandra".

The crux comes at the beginning and involves powerful stemming up the overhanging corner to reach a gigantic pocket. The route above climbs up a pleasant lichen-covered slab.

This route was originally climbed on gear, which was very bold, considering the nature of the rock. It has been retrobolted...by whom, I don't know...and now should be a popular route. The climbing is excellent, and the rock is very good too.
