Description

This 2-star route is typical of the Lower Gorge (my experience anyway): distinct curxes but not sustained (as opposed to 3- & 4-star lines). The first crux hits at the very bottom as you try to establish yourself in either a stem position or with both feet in the flared handcrack pod. Good rest awaits on ledge 15 feet up. Above, layback and/or stemming brings you to the upper crux: delicate stemming into another 6" wide pod. Once you get your feet in it, you've essentially done the route. Easier terrain (~5.8) brings you to anchors (on right side) atop Patent Leather Pump.

Location

West side of Lower Gorge on Catwalk Cliff immediately left of Patent Leather Pump (which in turn is 50 feet left of Cruel Sister).

Protection

Set of cams from smallest (black Alien or 00 TCU) to #2 Camalot. Double black Aliens (for me anyway), double yellow Aliens and double on #0.5 Camalots.
