Description

Start about 10' down and left of Mighty Quinn and climb varied face past a dihedral before moving slightly right and exiting onto the exposed headwall the climb finishes on. The crux is near the end, and while possible to climb directly over the bolt line, most opt to climb a slightly easier line just right of the bolts.

The rock is a little scrappy down low, but the variety of moves, exposure and overall length combine to make this a recommended route for the grade.

Location

Left side of the West Face between Highgrader and Mighty Quinn.

Protection

7 bolts, sport anchor

Amazing, long, and sustained. Loved every moment of it. The pump is real! (Hint: The holds are all there; just gotta look :P ) Sep 13, 2016

So much fun! One of the most engaging routes at Holcomb I think. Thought the end was pretty hard though since you're climbing on a bunch of steep crimps and all Nov 29, 2014
