Description

A truly classic climb on a system of cracks and features out a relentlessly steep wall and a roof. Once considered a "sport" route due to the fixed trad gear that many thought would always remain. In the last few years it has not had fixed gear and so has seen much fewer ascents.

Perhaps the only downfall to the line is that it is plagued by wetness, this route would see much more climbing if it dried out more often. When it does dry, it is a must climb for anyone who can keep up with this powerful, interesting route that requires some crazy beta. From the double knee-bar start,
to a foot-cam over your head and much more, this Journey is bound to keep you on your toes.

P.S. some folks like to climb it like a crack while others go at it like a powerful burl-fest either way it is likely to kick your ass for a while. So, play it to your strengths.
