Description

A fantastic sport climb using small edges and sidepulls to move across a disquietingly blank-looking wall. The moves all work out and its easier than it appears from the ground. Watch out for the sting in the tail, with a cruxy sequence coming just before the chains.

The large roofs above will keep this climb dry for a bit during the rain.

Location

This route begins atop the large block/flake just left of the thin crack "Earwax". A belay bolt is in place, and the route moves up and right, with a 5.11+ direct start coming in from below around bolt #4.

Protection

Fully bolted, with fixed 'biners in the chaines. Take 8 (or so) quickdraws.

Very fun route, especially the last few moves.
Compared to the other moderate on the wall, The Black Flag..., this route has more rests and seems slightly easier. Jul 29, 2014
