Description

A fun, deceptive line that starts up a left-to-right upward sloping ramp/crack and then proceeds up a smooth face.

Start to the left of the first bolt and make a couple of tenuous moves with slippery footholds and slopey hands and get established on the ramp. Make fun, balancy moves up and to the right until it's time to start up the face above.

Using inobvious moves get moving upward with a strenuous move or two, and continue moving between the bigger holds.

Location

The second-from-the-left bolted line on the west side. Follows a ramp/crack for the first few bolts.

Protection

5 bolts, chain anchors, shared with route to right (The Contortionist).

I really enjoyed this climb! It has very unique movement and I didn't really find it to be all that slippery (The Hell Area is far more slippery!). As with all the routes here, they could use a good brushing from lack of use. Jul 27, 2015

This is a highly unusual climb. After a challenging no feet grunt to the first bolt you traverse right using a huge crack at your knees with your feet on a ramp. You scoot up the crack balancing up the best you can then start to face climb up higher. I really liked it. Again, the sliperryosity of the rock brings a whole new dimension to AF climbing.
