Description

Power up thin moves along twin lieback flakes at the start to gain the "hole" and the end of the difficulties. Move up and left past a slight runout on easy ground (optional 1" piece) to the base of a steep smooth slab. Up the slab, move left over a small roof and finish up near-vertical bumpy face to anchors on a ledge.

It's recommended to clip the 1st bolt with a single locker and not clip the 2nd bolt until after you've grabbed the hole. Doing otherwise may make the route more difficult and result in a potential groundfall.

Location

Right of Mask of the Devil in a pit.

Protection

5 bolts, chain anchors

All but the start of this route was done by myself and Fred Maki in 2005 on toprope. At the start we stayed left on the obvious larger holds for a fun 5.8 route. Jul 5, 2009

If you follow the bolt line at the bottom, you will be going up a blank face with pin scar cracks and super crimpy holds. I slipped a few times after making the first bolt clip. This route had "just enough" holds and difficult beta if you stay on the bolt line. Very fun and surprising moves near the top. Aug 29, 2011

Fun, start is definitely hard for 10c. Felt it was probably 10d for the area. Interesting route for sure. Nov 17, 2014
