This unusual Lower Gorge route starts with a 10b crack broken up with horizontal seams leading to a rest in a "cave" inset. From here you clip a bolt and then launch into strenuous roof moves leading to the top.

Gear to 2 1/2 inches. One bolt protecting the roof, with additional optional gear placements possible above this.

To me the first 30' felt like the crux of the route. Weird balance moves, tricky to protect in spots. The roof is just plain fun climbing! Apr 17, 2015

Easy for 11a if you have reach. If you're shorter than maybe 5'6", could be quite hard. Also, along with On The Road, probably the most on-sightable 11 in the lower gorge. Jan 19, 2015
