This climb is very well named !

Climb the nice face past increasingly hard moves to the anchor. An excellent climb.

Continue up past the anchors to finish on Zeitgeist

At the far right side of the Shady Lady alcove, just left of a large fallen block.

Protection

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

Fun route! The climbing is intense and does not let up (even before the crux!), and between the challenging moves, tiny holds, and big potential for swinging, it definitely gets the adrenaline pumping. I was scared following this route!

Because of the swing potential, if you're going to leave a top-rope up, I suggest leaving your quickdraws in, and clip the rope back in on your way down. May 6, 2015

Uninspiring but good climbing until the finish, but the finish is probably worth it if you're in the area. Fun route. Jun 23, 2017

Felt much harder than the "5.10a Zeitgeist" extended finish. Respect the +plus+....haha. Oct 23, 2017
Really nice climb, guidebook says 5.9, but seems more like 10a to me. Jul 28, 2018

There were 2 large loose rocks on the route that were marked with the chalk X. I would suggest being mindful of them. I happen to like my belayers.

I thought the route felt more like a 10a but that may have been because I skipped the loose rocks. Aug 6, 2018
