A very good route, follows a crack system trending right through a couple of scary moves with so so pro then back left at the second break, around the corner and up to a big ledge.


Flake and crack with several obvious rock intrusions in the middle of the wall just right of the corner


Cams, wires to protect the crux. Bolted anchor.

Such a beautiful line and the climbing is not that bad either. The gear on the climb for the most part is totally bomber. I won’t say that the gear going up to the traverse is bad, but I will say that is it very intricate. If it fails then you should have really good stuff right below that and the fall will just be slightly longer. In my opinion, that is what makes trad great. The intimacy with the rock and all of its little intricacies. Worth the hype. Oct 23, 2017

A very deserving climb. Seems well protected. There are at least three ways to do the crux traverse. May 31, 2016

PG-13 my ass. I had bomber gear the ENTIRE way up. Apr 13, 2013

My first 5.10b/c trad. I was so pumped going into the crux, it wasn't even funny. So I placed a terrible tcu, climbed up and placed a terrible #1 camalot in the flared crack, then decided to just go for it and try not to fall. Luckily it worked out, but if it didn't, those cams probably wouldn't have held and a 30 footer was likely. Maybe I missed some bomber gear placements though... Dec 6, 2010
