Description [Suggest Change]
The route meanders in a shallow dihedral cut by ledges and delivers great climbing with balancy moves. There are no huge run-outs on this climb but rock quality and pro aren't great at spots where a fall could be rough - hence the R rating. The route starts from the top of triangular talus block and has three "cruxes" intersected with easier but delicate traverses and climbing on good holds. The low crux (5.10R) is the start of the route with no pro for 20 feet. The other two cruxes (5.11) higher up take decent pro but getting to them can be exciting.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route is located roughly 25 yards north from Superior Crack. Walk along the cliff and locate a notch above a shallow dihedral with a triangle-shaped block at the bottom. The top anchors can be set up from slings around trees.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Small to medium nuts, small TCU's, Aliens, or C3's. Lowe Balls are very useful. Single medium cams up to BD #4. Double ropes and plenty of 24 and 48 inch slings.
