Ascend 15ft of easy terrain to a bolt on the right of an obvious roof. Burl through the roof and pull onto the arete (crux). After another tough move getting onto the face, easier ground follows above. Continue up and right to one last move below the anchor.


Start 10ft right of Stepchild in an alcove.


8 Bolts. Fixed draws on the first two bolts.


Refreshed the biners and permadraws a bit: new cable draw at second, cable draw with new biner on third now. Perma at last bolt removed.

If you can clip 4th, you can finish the route. If you don't make the move to 4th bolt, now there's no need to climb Step Child to recover gear from 3rd bolt. Jul 23, 2017

Did route a while ago. I remember it being a pretty fun bouldery route! Sep 3, 2016

Placed fixed draws on the first two bolts. If they get manky, PM me and I'll replace the biners or bug someone else to do it. Sep 30, 2015

Really fun and powerful crux. Once you get onto the headwall though, moving right into the finish is rather contrived, as you are standing directly below, and with reach of the direct finish into Stepchild... traversing right and then up seems a bit weird. Either way its a fun route. Sep 14, 2015

Fixed draws on the first 3 bolts will probably be a nice addition, with a 8" chain on the second one. Getting to the anchor when there's dirt/debris and moist lichen on the shelf is fun... Jun 24, 2013
