Description

Looking at this route from the bottom then checking the guide I expect the route to be easy for the grade and maybe a bit of a squeeze job as it shares the last two bolts with the neighboring route. I was quite surprised with an actual crux section arrived mid route.

Location

First route right of the crack system separating the twin towers. Last two bolts and anchor share with "Lock Down" .

3rd Edition Mayr guide - listed as route 804

Protection

6 bolts - shut anchors (shares with Lock down)

Not as good as the route "Fine Day" immediately to the left. Surprised by a set of moves in the middle which makes it harder than Fine Day (same grade) in my opinion.

Only 1 star mostly so it will tag with MP - worth doing while there. Jan 2, 2007

Much harder than the .10a (Fine Day) to the left. Either Fine Day is soft, or this route is hard for the grade. Just the moves past the second bolt are hard; route eases up after clipping the third bolt. Nov 21, 2011

Great route, but going right after the 2 to 3rd bolt, something must have ripped off. Had to go left and up that crack. makes for a 10c move. Tough moves Jan 15, 2017
