Description

Start up "Hole In One" for the first 3 bolts. (longer draw on the 3 bolt helps with rope drag) Then head up and right thru steep huecos, turn the lip on thin holds and face climb to the anchors.

Protection

8 bolts, closed cold shut anchor.

Nice route taking the right hand line of the 3 routes that push the roof. Seemed like a cleaner more direct route than "hole in one" to the left. Hung at the 4th bolt as it was difficult to release with my right. Shuffle of the feet a few seconds rest and bingo! Nice route, fun and would definitely do it again. By the way kids. I don't lead .11d. The grade is inflated. Sorry.

edit: Russ is sitting here and claims in old-skool fashion that I hung...therefore, I did not lead the route.

Brilliant line! Fun and varied. Agree with Susan's beta that the route gets easier if you hang on it. Apr 7, 2014
Another +1 for Susan's crux-hang beta, was super helpful for my onsight flash. Nov 26, 2015

Can't speak for you guys but it wasn't the first or last time for "hang then fire". Nov 28, 2015
