Pull a move or two in order to gain the dihedral. Stemming, high stepping and thin fingers will bring you to a stance from which you traverse right to a bomber flake. Pull a couple of slightly overhanging moves to a good stance and follow some classic NRG topout slopers to the anchors.


Continue walking upstream from the Burning Buttress. This is one of the first routes you'll come to on the wall to the right of, and adjacent to the wall that has Rod Serling Crack on it. Look for a beautiful left-facing dihedral that is very similar to Black and Tan at Endless Wall.


Everything from #2 Camalot to purple TCU. Thin stuff for the middle. Bolted anchor up top.

A very good route! Sustained, but not too long. A robust, dicey start leads to a thin technical corner, which gives way to a nicely exposed finish. Not as blue collar as other routes nearby.

Bring all your small gear. Expect to do some fiddling, but it's all there. I found two spots for #2s (the first one is obvious and basically on the ground) and a thank-God #1 up top. Sep 30, 2018
