Description

A bouldery start on incut plates (crux) leads over a bulge and onto a vertical face with abundant edges. Higher, fun climbing leads up the face to a high-step move on plates and a balancy lieback move up and right to the anchors.

Super fun climbing with great protection make this a highly recommended route of the area.

Location

Located between Lost Highway and Lunar Eclipse, this route climbs the left side of an attractive plated face.

Protection

6 bolts, chain anchors

I did it on top rope since I wasn't feeling up to leading it and was damn impressed about the difficulty of this route. I lead coyotes in the hen house (5.10d) on claim jumper the week prior and I think this route is harder than that one is. Fantastic climb Jul 22, 2016

Once you're past the bouldery start it's great edge/patina climbing with fun movement. Really fun! May 28, 2016

I loosely remembered a bouldery start on this route but had completely forgotten how good it is. This is a goodie, try it! May 2, 2015

The clip isn't too bad if you boulder up high and clip at your waist. Oct 26, 2011

This climb is soooo much fun! The start yields a puzzle that will be solved according to your height, reach and particular technical strengths. Then lots of vertical movement above the overhanging area with great moves up high! Jun 21, 2008
