Description

several varitions makes this climb either 10+ or 11b. there is a left leaning crack on the right side that is (according to Dane) not supposed to be used for the 11b and this also goes for the very easy to reach ramp on the left side. all of these features are within an arms reach so its whatever you feel up for at the time. basically stay on the face for the 11b rating and exit right or left for a 10+ rating.

Location

right of flying scorpion

Protection

10 - 12 bolts

Fun route. Rating depends on how directly you climb it. Going left or right lowers the rating quite a bit from what's sated in the Bass guide. Mar 18, 2010

Fun Route! Climb it twice, do the direct version first, follow the bolts straight up, and then the slightly right version using the crack. Both are worth it and very fun! Little crimpy moves and techie feet on this one! Jan 10, 2012

After leading this route twice (over different years), I've been unable to do it "direct". I set off with VERY good intentions to go direct but yet still find the natural flow, slightly right. I may starts off directly over the bolts but to me, in the end, I flow to the right. Mar 1, 2016
