Description

This is really one of the classic lines on the mountain. Big and steep with a remarkable series of features on a sheer overhanging wall. The question is has it been repeated since reported breakages took place? For such a stunning line, little info has been distributed publicly. See Chip's comments for more background.

On the south side of Nooks Rock is a blatantly obvious, steep wall. Start low and left, move right and grapple with flakes, an obvious pocket, etc.

The rock quality seems to be an issue, but the landing is problematical also. Bring a few spotters and a bunch of pads.

This problem is worth a dozen Trices and may be just as hard.

Protection

Molto pads.

I sent this gorgeous, unrepeated line yesterday November 9, 2013. I started matched on the Bot Slayer jug then big first move out right to a crimper, followed the crimps up the middle of the face ending in the obvious seam left of the top point to top out! Nov 10, 2013

Just watched a video on a link here. The above question has been answered...Bot Slayer, V10. I'd put in an entry but know next to nothing about it...other than really thin and really hard. Jul 2, 2013

I am interested in the right to left traverse under Butt Slammer. It appears to share the start, but goes left across a heinous crimper, a small pocket, and out to the left arete..Any beta out there? Jul 19, 2012
