Description

Do first pitch of Transmission (3 bolts and gear, 10d); go left from anchors to a crack for 10' and continue up and left thru overhung face (8 bolts and gear at start only, crux pitch, 11c); up steep face to exposed lieback arete finish; this can be bypassed by going on the arete for an easier finish (8 bolts, 10c). Rap route w/single 60m rope.

Location

north facing on central buttress

Protection

Found the cruxes on the 2nd pitch to be significantly harder than the other 11+ climbs at Iso. Extremely sustained and delicate-powerful climbing with moves that needed a lot of thought. Had to step "Off route" a couple times to rest and eye the steep ground ahead that appeared devoid of holds (thankfully, this route doesn't see much traffic and so isn't plastered with chalk like Submission). Needs fluidity and speed to get through without total burnout! May 31, 2013

The second pitch of this route is amazing, sustained with thin positive holds, 2 very fun challenging cruxes. Not to be missed. Nov 10, 2013

3 stars for pitches 1 and 2 ... 1 star for pitch 3. More traffic would make pitch 3 much better as it was caked in lichen. I would suggest to anyone wanting to tackle this route to end pitch 2 on the ledge at the anchors for Remission (the start of Ying Yang) and then climb the end of p2 and the whole of p3. This would be a much better perch for the belayer and eliminates the collision risk if the leader falls on the lichen covered smears at the start of p3. Climbing Ying Yang for pitch 3 may be the best option for clean, fun climbing (keeping in mind I haven't climbed that route yet...it's just a thought). May 7, 2015
