A hard slab with a sustained crux. Well protected, however the bolts are buttonheads with some old rusty hangers. Oct 20, 2009

All bolts have been replaced as of 1/15. This is an amazing super sustained hard slab pitch. Very proud that is was put up on lead. Get on it and crimp razor blades! Jan 27, 2015

This route has certainly changed character since the first ascent, and will likely continue to be picked clean as more folks attempt it in the future.
Besides the crispy potato chips in the beginning, this route is quality and offers a memorable slab experience for folks into that sorta thing.

(Thanks Zach for retrofitting this route with good hardware! Climbing this on rusty buttonheads and self- drills must have been intense..)

12- to the 3rd bolt (start direct or traverse in from the right to start), then sustained 5.10 with a 5.11 crux higher up.

40 meter pitch, 11 bolts Jan 17, 2018
