Climb easily to a bolt 20' off the ground. Pass this with crimpy fun climbing up to a diagonal crack. Climb through this crack (passing over Natural HIgh) aiming for a right facing corner with a pin in it. Pull through through the roof at the top of the corner and finish off the climb on good in-cut holds to a slabby top out. Finishes at the same anchor as for Natural High.


Follow the trail from the turn off on the way to Echo. The first major open area you will come to will be at the base of a low angle section of cliff. Tempered, Not is located in the center, about 5' right of Natural High.


A standard rack does fine. Gear is somewhat sparse and or in suspect features so come with a strong lead head. A 70m rope will get you down from anchors, or 2 60m ropes.

The book has this climb rated at 5.9. I thought that it felt a bit soft for 5.9 so I put it in at .9- Nov 19, 2009
