Description

A powerful start leads to a cruxy balance move. Sustained, delicate climbing leads past several small corners and a small roof to finish on a ledge.

The fact that this route has been flashed by someone five feet tall (guess who) should be enough to silence any complaints about the reachy climbing. The crux is 100% Index and is more than enough to keep almost any ego in check.

The second clip is powerful and a fall from that point would be a ground fall. Also, my diminutive 5'10" reach was just barely enough to get the first quickdraw on from the ground, so bring a tall friend (AKA a stick clip) along if your arms are shorter. The bolt after the crux is even more reachy unless you are bold.

Location

Located to the left of Heironymous Bosch. It is the leftward trending line of bolts that approaches Fifth Force and then arches back right. A 60m rope should be sufficient for the descent.

Protection

Six bolts plus a two bolt anchor. If you are short (under 6 ft.) a couple of the bolts will be very difficult to clip (from stances) without quickdraws hanging.
