Description

This climb comes at you right away, with it's thin edge crux at the second bolt, as you struggle to gain a ledge and the end of the difficulties. Higher, the climbing stays interesting as you weave your way up blocky ledges and culminates with an enjoyable series of moves right to the anchors.

Despite being a one move wonder, this has enjoyable climbing for most of it's length and is a worthy tick if in the area.

Location

Located in the center of the Slander Sector, just right of Babyface and left of Drama.

Protection

9 bolts, ring anchors

[Hide Comment] Climbed this route today. I totally agree with Chris's description. The only thing I'll add is that I think the bottom crux is 5.11d. We climbed two 5.11d's today along with this one. The crux on this route was harder than any move on the other two 5.11d's and was almost as hard as the lower crux of Slander Magnet 5.12a/b nearby. As Chris mentions, the rest of the route is easier, but still enjoyable, especially the finish. Dec 2, 2009

[Hide Comment] Interesting climbing requiring good body positioning and commitment at the crux. It's a bit dirty, and doesn't get climbed much. A worthy tick, easily top-roped from the anchors of the new route: Sweetie (5.9). May 14, 2014
