Same start as The Soul. At the horizontal break, cut right and up past bolts (avoiding the 11b crux of The Soul). Well-protected face climbing leads to a 2-bolt anchor shared with The Soul.




Great moderate lead. One 5.10 move early on followed by well bolted 5.8 climbing to the top. Easy clips, lots of bolts. Feb 8, 2006

Clipping the bolt at the crux is a little spooky. Blow the clip (or even blow it getting to the clip) and you'll blow your ankles. An orange or yellow TCU before the questionable clip will keep you safe. Aug 10, 2006

Yeah, spooky, especially when you can't find that high right and with an extended sling on the bolt below your feet... Mar 3, 2008
The big juggy hold that allows you to clip the aforementioned bolt is ready to give way, be warned. I could hear it creaking and cracking as I pulled down on it. Additional gear is recommended before the questionable clip Jan 23, 2011
