Description

The crux of this route is the deceptively slick traverse, exiting left, from the roof after climbing up a dihedral crack.

Note: Please make it a point to lead this climb on your next visit to Mission Gorge and comment on the suggested grade. I thought the traverse was a bit too slick for 5.9

Protection

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

makes you work for it but still felt like 5.9 to me, maybe 5.9+ tops. Oct 4, 2008

agreed the traverse is slick, but getting out from under the roof was even harder. Feb 21, 2009
i think this route feels safer to lead than to follow. very slippery feet on traverse and also hard to read. and did i mention reachy. this is one of those routes i love but wonder why. hint, don't place any cams in the leftmost pockets. you need it for your hand. Aug 9, 2011
