Description

Get past the first 3 bolts, and the crux is over. Halfway up, most folks stay left and work the left-facing dihedral. However, the direct line is doable, but the difficulty increases significantly. Pushing directly up the face would mean 12-ish climbing.

Location

Blood is currently the 2nd route from the left on the North Wall. Red Hangers.

Protection

14 bolts.

This is a really long & fairly sustained line. The upper headwall seemed pretty spooky to me. I would not loiter around the base of this route while someone is climbing. Aug 10, 2009

If you manage to get past the bottom 3 clips with out getting flash pump...it's in the bag (the rest is like 9ish?). The top can be pretty loose and dirty up right so stand clear at the bottom like Mono said. Good views from the top. Jul 19, 2010

Route has cleaned up pretty nicely, but it is a good idea to have the belayer wear a helmet. Jun 17, 2014

It's a shame that to keep the climb 5.11 you must avoid the beautiful gray arete by staying left in a crappy corner system. The way it was bolted also forces your rope to drag across the arete. The top was fun and easy movement, but it has plenty of bad rock. Jul 31, 2016

This route is absolutely fantastic! If you climb a lot of Western Slope limestone, the climbing past the 3rd bolt to the anchor is unforgettable. Sep 6, 2016
