Description

Originally a gear route that was retrobolted, The Force follows a right facing flake system. At the last bolt, a long reach for a crappy rail followed by a spooky heel hook move and reach for the large sandbag perched at the top of this route. If the grade feels hard for the route which it will, remember this used to be done on gear alone! (Probably with some TR rehearsal)
This is a really good route. I'm surprised it doesn't get done more often. Give it a try.

Location

Towards the right side of the crag, but before the fence. Look for a right facing flake two routes to the right of Grape Ape, the right-facing dihedral.

Protection

bolts to chains. can also be lead on gear. bring a light rack with singles up to a #3 Camalot, and your smallest stuff + 1 set of nuts... big brass nuts.
