This is on the black face between Slippery Nipple and Undertow (right-leaning dihedral). Climb up fun plates to a stopper crux climbing through a blank section. Reach the crux plate, then continue on jugs to the anchors at 70 feet.


Left of the cable marking the start of Slippery Nipple is a blank face above a perfect belay rock.


5 bolts to two bolt anchor.

This route would be a classic if not for the hard to clip crux bolt and almost impossible crux slab moves. Mar 23, 2009

Agreed, the bolt in the middle of the plate sucks/impossible to clip till you've gained the top of the plate. It would be better placed lower so you could clip then attempt the low percentage, no foot move through the big plate. Hard climb, we guessed grade, couldn't stick the crux sequence. Nov 18, 2012

I most certainly botched that bolt placement! Planning on relocating it when I get the time. Nov 19, 2012
