Description

Begin with the first two bolts of Ours and then break right and follow a long waterstreak up the slab passing seven more bolts. The climbing is a fun combination of smearing with positive edges and once past the initial runout section is well-protected.

From the top either rap (165') with two ropes or rap with a single line down to the anchor on Ours and one more to the ground.

Location

Right side of the Sideshow Slab with a shared start with Ours.

Protection

9 bolts, chain anchors

A bit hard for .10a right at the transition between 2 and 3 near the diagonal crack feature. The line felt slightly forced at around bolt 5 or 6 ( easier climbing to the left). That being said, a sustained, fun line that has engaging climbing for almost its whole length. Kudos to Chris et. el. for a worthy addition to this slab. Jun 18, 2009

A great line on great rock. In the G+V guide the start is listed at 10b R, no way its more than 5.9, the new G guide has it at 5.9. Same start as Ours. Oct 10, 2016
