A nice warm-up for the area offering gradually steeper climbing until the crux at the top which takes good holds out a swell of rock. Make sure to unclip the last bolt when lowering to prevent your rope from getting pinched in the "vee" and trashing it unduly.


Shares the first four bolts with Tangerine Dream then splits left to a shared anchor with Adrenaline.


9 bolts, ring anchors

Easy enjoyable climbing leads you quickly to the steep finish. Once the last bolt is clipped push on quickly passed the crux before your strength runs out - the holds above the crux are good, but a fall from just below the anchors would not be pretty. Sep 27, 2008

One short crux section makes this an 5.11. Progressively more difficult climb starts 5.8 and moves up from there. Shares the anchor with Adrenaline if you want to work on it. Jul 22, 2011

Holds on the roof are there, just pull and work your way over. The feet are out to the left. 11-ish crux. Dec 21, 2011

The majority of the route is so easy that the crux hits you like a brick.

Some tough clipping stances if you're unfamiliar with the route - as I was. Throw in some rope drag and it was headier than I expected. Aug 19, 2014

I added chains and fixe carabiner to the anchors of this route. Lowering of the rings of the original anchor were notorious for twisting up the rope because the angle they were drilled in. Dec 3, 2015
