Description

This is one of those routes that had my number. I knew how hard it was, I knew how to do it, I knew I could do it, and yet I fell in the same place every stinking time. I gave up (in '96) and Scott from MN nabbed the FA (in '06, in the rain just to add insult to injury).
Anyway, this route is incredible and incredibly powerful. Climb the slightly overhanging first 15 feet up to the bulge. The climbing through the bulge is some of the coolest I've done in the canyon. After you manage the crux bulge, the upper headwall eases up but it does contain one little dicey move.
Hats off to Scott.

Great route. Not quite over once you do the dyno. One more tough move awaits. Mar 18, 2007
