Description

The Streak (whose first pitch is the same as Opposing Gravity's) is an apt description of this butt stain of a route. The holds are large. Follow up the right angling ramp onto the face. Careful for loose rock on the ramp (even still in 2010).

Location

Big Wall, route immediately right of the Hinterland streak. There is a prominent right angling ramp. Don't follow the ramp up Alpine Line.

Protection

4 bolts, anchors just out of sight above large finishing jug, down and right of the visible hanging chains. Bring longer draws or runners to hang over the finish hold.

For me, this route has two cruxes; one right at the bottom (2nd bolt) and one near the anchors. It's a burly 10. May 26, 2009
