Description

A fun steep climb with a short crux. Long moves and a difficult sideways reach (crux) make up most the climb.

Location

Found on the west face of Flaming Rock. A short distance right of the ultra-classic Tribal Boundaries.

Protection

Draws to bolted anchor.

really good route that is in your face immediately, and doesn't really let up until you clear the bulge. the bolts are close enough together that it isn't dangerous, but far enough apart that you are nervous about hitting your belayer. good bolt locations though - it would be hard to clip at any other locations.

definitely try to do it in cooler weather. the holds are tough to pull in a positive direction and you need that extra bit of friction. hot weather felt a bit greasy. Aug 5, 2013
