Description

Another inimitable Perlin route. Some call it straightforward pocket-pulling, others call it the best route for hundreds of miles. Either way, it's no give-away and keeps you engaged for the whole pitch. Stout crimps lead to pocket after pocket after pocket... awesome!

Location

Follows a prominent black streak of rock at the left-hand side of the Tor. The starting holds are a shallow slot for the left hand, and a pinch for the right. Kick right foot way out right, fire left hand up to diagonal crimp, then start pulling.

Protection

Technically, the route has 6 fixed draws, but there is a bolt at the crux with no draw on it. You can bring an extra draw, but I recommend you climb through the crux and risk the near-perfect fall. You don't want to clip off those pockets anyways.
