Description

According to Bob's book, this route was one of the first in the canyon.

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 climbes 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.

One of the best routes I've done in the canyon. Highly recommended! Dec 11, 2010

A great route that seems to rarely see traffic. I didn't do much stemming and instead opted for crimpy lieback. The slab above is very enjoyable with a balancy redpoint crux coming right before the top shelf. May 15, 2012

Unlike most routes in this canyon, this route felt soft. Nonetheless, it was a blast! May 27, 2017

Killer route - unfortunately maybe only one in canyon that I want a clipper stick on. Jun 4, 2018
