"Take a short but very meaningful journey into the Twilight Zone"

Pull through the crux roof moving right onto the overhanging headwall, then back left and up to the anchors. Tricky.


This is currently the rightmost route in The Twilight Zone.


9 bolts to chain and ring anchor.

Fun! With all respect to Crag Dweller, I don't think you need to be worried about extending any of these bolts. I clipped all of them (including the kind of unnecessary first bolt) with short sport draws, and I didn't notice rope drag at all. Jul 29, 2013

A really fun route. The roof was more pumpy than I anticipated and, after a little rest, the headwall continues to challenge with a steep, tricky sequence.

A couple of suggestions. First, as others have said, the lower half is really chossy, so the belayer should set up with the ability to get out of the way in case anything comes down. And, you'll save yourself some rope drag if you use long draws on the 2nd and 3rd bolts, plus you'll prevent the rope from running across the edge of the roof. Aug 31, 2012
Awesome, technical, balancy upper section!
Got a draw on the last bolt but couldn't clip it - made for an awesome redpoint! Jun 13, 2011

Chossy at the bottom... would be a three star route otherwise. The roof and above is brilliant! Very well bolted. Jul 12, 2009

Fun route. Definitely a little tricky to read. May 8, 2009
