Description [Suggest Change]

Nice slab climbing leads to an intimidating bulge and a fun mantle. Chose between powerful and delicate face climbing or an inobvious alternative to get established in the crack, then cruise to the top.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three bolts and gear to 1.5". The first bolt(s) are shared with Stolen Thunder.

I suppose it is true for any slabby route, it is better in cool temps, seemed really hard on a sweaty day. This is a tough 5.9, after the spooky run-out near the start, one pulls up onto a ledge that feels committing moving above your last pro. Then the crux getting into a shallow flaring crack.
