Description

An interesting route, I found it to have a few quirks that I wasn't that in to but it had some really fun moves. I found it to be reachy (and I'm 6' 2") and the bolt placement seemed a little weird. The first 2 bolts are good. The 3rd bolt felt like it could get you in to ground fall zone. The 3rd and 4th were off to the left farther than I thought they should be. The anchors were really hard to reach from what I saw as the finishing hold. That being said, the climbing it self was engaging mentally and physically and is very worth while if you can look past the quirks listed above.

Start up a technical face on pretty good holds that are sometimes far apart. After about 4 bolts the wall kicks back big time and you tackle a juggy roof to the anchors. Luckily there is a cool little cave rest at the transition from technical face to roof. So nestle in for a rest before punching it to the chains.

Location

The left trending route on the far left end of the steep main wall at The Asylum.

Protection

6 bolts to anchors. Fixed lower biners in place when I was there.
