This is an awesome line. It goes up one of the cleaner sections of wall at the Quarry. Its hard to give a crux. It's very sustained for the first 40 or 50 feet. It really hard around the 7th or 8th bolt so I'd have to say thatÂ’s the crux. After that it gets less steep and more holds appear. One more cruxy section will lead you the anchors. Currently there are fixed draws on this route.


This is the line with fixed draws that climbs through a roof in the beginning then moves into a steep wall with some orange rock here and there. There are some large boulders with a bolt and chalked holds right near the base of the climb


13 bolts, chain anchors
