Description

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

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.
