A long chossy slab leads up to the first bolt. At this point the route becomes steep with long moves between really good holds until a small overlap/undercling. The crux follows with hard technical moves off of sidepulls and crimps. The crux is relatively short but tricky.

One of the best routes at Clark. Better than Driller Instinct, in my opinion. Good flowy moves, on good rock. Jul 29, 2013
