Description

When Foster was looking for FA’s to do on this wall he was looking for lines he could onsight and FA all in one swoop. He was ever efficient with his agendas and deadly effective with his execution. You don’t get a nickname like “The Assassin” without a certain discipline.

Starts to the right of Dr. Octagon, and shares anchors with that route as well. Climb up chunky rock towards a seam in a very obtuse open dihedral. Look for a pin (that you can see from the ground), and continue up the seam passing edges, and finger pods. The moves are strenuous for the angle, and the jams seem to me to be sequential to a degree. A classic heads up Foster route...

Location

Middle of the right wall, look for pin at 1/3 height in seam.

Protection

Small/ medium TCUs, small/medium wires.

Really cool route! Protected surprisingly well. I used a number of small wires. Triple grey Metolius or the equivalent will come in handy as well as doubles up to 0.4 Camelot. I used nothing larger than that. Aug 29, 2009
