Description

Classic Owen's pumpy edge pulling. Start out by bearhugging small flakes and edges. The crux comes at the 4th bolt and is a balancy yet powerful move leading to a good horizontal. At this point the route used to go straight up but a key hold has broken. You can still go straight up but most people move right, do a long reach and come back left to the jugs. After a good shake on a huge sidepull, pull edges to the top. Pumpy, long and fun.

The traverse out right and back at the 5th bolt can be avoided with a sidepull, step up to crimp, get on clipping hold, match crimp and stand-up. really fun movement. you might need to be on the tall side for that. Mar 31, 2014

This thing is awesome. The traverse out right at the 6th is a little far from the last bolt but the climbing isn't hard. I thought the quality was fine and MUCH better than the thing to the right. Apr 8, 2013
there's some bad rock on this one. at the crux, instead of doing a hard deadpoint move, you can go left at 5.11, also the right way around the upper bit is a little scary.
Someone should bring a bazooka and blow this thing up Feb 2, 2012

This route is probably my favorite 12a in ORG for both the moves (not all edgin'!) and the setting....pretty rock Mar 26, 2007
