Description

A deservedly popular and possibly slightly sandbagged route. Steep sustained climbing on big holds.

Location

From the first bunch of climbs ascend to the second tier (aka Impact Zone) and this is the first route you see right in front of you ascending an orange streaked face with lots of chalk on it.

Really fun climb! I thought that 5.9+ was also fair. I will say that some of the rock sounded pretty hollow and not super solid midway up the route. Definitely worth doing, but half way up I really wished my belayer had a helmet. If you don't have a helmet, you'll probably be fine, but just wanted to put that out there. Sep 7, 2017

I have never cleaned with just clipping into the chains before this climb. Afterwards I did walk around up top and found the chains. To my surprised they were in a dangerous position. I don't know if pulling of the rope from below flung the chains wrong or if cleaning a top rope set up caused the chains to get in a potentially dangerous situation. The triangular shunts that anchor in the chains have a little gap and if the chains are in that gap instead of their proper position, a strong top rope fall could definitely pull the chains through one of them. the other did not seem to have as much of a gap but still... (I di not have my camera on me to get a pic of what I am talking about) Aug 18, 2017

I think 5.9+ is fair. That rest right before the crux lets you shake out the pump from the first section. But without it I could agree with a 10a rating. Mar 15, 2015

Great route, rc.com says 7 bolts but there are actually 9 bolts to the chains, glad we counted before going up or I would have been a few draws short and the top section is definitely harder. Aug 25, 2014
Awesome route! Fun and pumpy with a "big" move super close to the top. The view is breathtaking at the top... tell your belayer to wait before lowering and take a look around! Definitely a must do. May 8, 2013
