Description

Start to the left of Rubber Mission. This route is on the right side of the north face of the tower. Difficult crux is down low, from there it's a matter of fighting the pump to make it over the lip, where it lightens from there.

Protection

11 bolts to anchors.

Killer route. One of the better sport climbs I've ever climbed. I don't think there's even a .12b move on it, just a ton of .11+ moves one after another. Awesome. Apr 22, 2011

This is by far one of the coolest routes i have ever climbed! Yeh I agree with Dave spot on for 12b, and it isn't over till you scream or clip the anchors. Highly recommended if you want a good 12a+ to work on. The biggest holds you will ever fall off of! Apr 28, 2010

A truly great climb, classic at the grade (12b seems spot on). Relentlessly steep and pumpy through the 8th bolt or so, with a couple of tricky cruxes thrown in. Top eases off to around 10+, but it's exciting all the way to the anchors. Big clean whippers. Feb 25, 2008
