Description

This long pitch offers some enjoyable vertical climbing to a stance below a severely overhanging corner. Above this things get steep and funky... there are some seriously strange moves up through the upper half of the route: quick, three-dimensional thinking is key. Totally unique and classic.

Identify the route by looking for a distinct overhanging column high on the wall (just left of center in the main Amphitheater) that appears to be partly detached from wall. There is an obvious bolt at the foot of this column, and the route trends up from there and tackles the corner formed by the left side of the column. The start is currently pretty heavily choked with poison ivy so be careful.

Protection

A single set of cams to 1" followed by 9 bolts.
