Description

Starts out steep and requires some thoughtful movement to keep your balance and get your feet where your hands are! Crystals and knobs to a sidepull\lieback crux to the 5th bolt. Above the crux you will find the edge of the blade within reach. From there it's 5.8 if you use the edge, 5.10 if you don't. Fairly sustained climbing but there are many nice rests and clipping stances.

Location

From Monster regis. station head west and then up right past Teachers Pet, toward Crystal Ship and Pointy Little Devil. Across gully from P.L.D., follow trail up left then down to C.I.C. area. Route is 15' right of Creature Comforts, about 70-80' before you come to C.I.C.

Protection

10 bolts to double bolt rap anchor.

Both Tater Tot and Jerry W think this route is way easier than .12a. Maybe I missed something. Give it a try and chime in! Aug 23, 2011

As Dave said, I would rate this route somewhere around 11a. I should go climb it again and see if I was just having a really "on" day. Sep 13, 2011
