Description Suggest change

A worthwhile change of pace. The rating is more accurate if you drop a number from the guidebook grade -- all three members of our party flashed this after two of us flailed on ?Lou Raven's Rest? (10c/d). The pitch starts in a desert tower like wide crack at the bottom of a very large, hanging right-facing corner. Up the crack, onto the right face of the corner for a couple of clips. Then, reach over to the left face of the corner, clipping bolts and stemming until the location of the bolts force you to commit to the left face entirely. The airy position here is invigorating, but the holds are pretty good. Continue up the left face to anchors at its top.

Maybe, if one committed to the left face as early as possible, it might feel like 5.11, but it would sure be contrived.

Location Suggest change

On the far left/east of The Dark Side, one route left of From a Whisper to a Scream.

Protection Suggest change

8 bolts.
