Boulder up onto a small ledge, clip a bolt and then climb thin face up to a huge, hanging flake which is liebacked up the overhanging face. The crux comes above the flake, where a tricky sequence on smallish holds gains a jug and somewhat easier climbing. Stays interesting all the way to the anchors, especially if pumped.

For the grade as good as any route at the Pinnacles, with steep climbing on good holds and fun moves throughtout.


Located on the right side of the wall and identified as the right of three bolted routes.


7 bolts, chain anchors

One of the best at the pinnacles. (All of the climbs on this wall are pretty quality). The tricky crux leads straight into sustained climbing until the top. Crux required a few attempts. Mar 22, 2011

Lieback to a ledge, then make a steep move to an undercling; a strenuous (thankfully short) overhanging lieback leads to a horizontal crack, then a crux bulge negotiated by a crimp and a sidepull, there's some strenuous stuff on good holds following this then beautiful knobby face/steep slab.

It's a great routes and deserves more traffic, if the comments here are any indicator. Mar 23, 2014

Absolutely amazing!!! Super line! Solid for 11a....sustained and fun. Not really "overhanging" ...more like slightly overhanging sections. Jun 16, 2014
