Description

Tenuous and thin slab moves past the first bolt start things off, but the difficulty quickly eases at the second bolt. Higher move past a small ledge and head up and right to finish up steep slab with interesting movement.

* Sometime around 2014(?) a number of chipped holds appeared low on this route - avoiding them is highly recommended and does not affect the rating.

Location

Center of the west face, between Benevolent Bruin on the left and La Paws on the right.

Protection

4 bolts, ring anchors

Awesome climb and really freakin' hard at the start. Fun crimpy/slab climbing all the way! Sep 2, 2009

Three chipped holds have appeared at the start of this route sometime in the last year or two. Despite the chipper's handiwork the holds are easily avoided and, of course, not needed or wanted.

I remember seeing these last summer and thinking the same thing. Makes no sense at all. Jun 7, 2015

Very disappointing seeing these chips. So sad that someone thought permanently destroying something was the best way to do anything. Otherwise it actually is a pretty fun route. Sep 13, 2016

A portion of the crucial left crimp broke off and is now slightly smaller; the grade remains unaffected. Apr 27, 2018
