Description

amazing route. it goes up the main arete on the midwall. there is realy no crux, just extreamly difficult moves for ever with no rests.
alittle bit stout for the grade. like "squeeler" only harder.

Did this route for the first time 3/07. Fantastic route! Walked to midwall to escape the grotto crowds and were rewarded with this gem.

We were the second party on it this season... the holds were reasonably clean the first half of the route; up to the bail biner! After that, there was no chalk, and dirt and plants growing in the holds. Cleaned up pretty well.

Tricky, deceptive, and enduro, no power cruxes. A fantastic climb, I'll have to go back and get it clean.

Also, lots of P.O. growing around the base. Looks like it probably got sprayed last year, and the first tendrils are growing back, so take care. Mar 18, 2007
