Description

This route is a grunter. The first crux is right off the ground and a second about 10 feet from the top. The moves aren't classic, but will make you think. The first crux is technical, while the higher crux requires a bit of power. Once you find the start is is pretty hard to get off route.

Location

This route starts about 5 feet right of Heatwave, under a small triangular roof.

Protection

Top rope only. Not safely leadable.

I will admit the technical lower portion is a hard onsight problem. But really this climbing is not 5.10c/d. Oct 5, 2010

This climb is basically two technical boulder problems sandwiching a well-needed rest point halfway up the route. For the very confident 5.11 and up leader, this climb on gear would be a significant accomplishment. After toproping it today, some of us think it could be led so long as a few crashpads/spotters are present at the bottom. Protection is sparse at first, but there are a few bomber placements higher up. One of my favorite climbs in the area because if demands creative movements... Jun 10, 2010

This route is a killer and called Mantrap for a reason. I've seen a couple people get up to the roof and then get totaly stuck.
Getting to the roof and then pulling the roof takes so much out of you that the upper half of the route becomes much more difficult than it would seem.
This is one of my favorites here because of the difficulty and variety of the climb.

Be careful where you stand when belaying the climber at the start because if they pop off the will swing out a ways. Feb 25, 2009
