Description

The best route at the crag that fires straight up the middle of the overhanging amphitheatre via crimps, slopers, and pockets without a real rest on the whole route. Start up the face just right of the little cave and crux it out with big moves off pockets and slopers to gain a rest and clip off a big slopping hold. Then a series of excellent moves off a heel hook deposit you at a dihedral at the top of the face, stay left of the dihedral and go to the top of the cliff to clip cold shuts. Pumpy and fun the whole way....

Location

Right in the middle of the amphitheatre, just right of a small cave.

Protection

5 bolts and shuts.

Agreed, I felt this line was stouter than Common Misconception and Edolesence. May 31, 2009

I'm not much to babble about ratings, but Brandon and I both thought this was harder than Common Misconception as well. May 20, 2009

Well, I wouldn't say im a strong climber by any means, but I'm definitely interested in some new link-ups. Mar 28, 2009

That would make the pocketed gray streak to the right of it Common Misconception right? It was confusing because it seemed way easier than the CHCA. marking the climbs would be very convenient. Thanks for posting it, really cool to have some local limestone to train on Mar 16, 2009
