Description [Edit]

Furthest route on the right side of Kamikaze Cave. Starts on the mound. Note a jug broke off between the 2nd and 3rd bolt(1st and 2nd prehung bolts) which allowed you to clip above your head. Now you have to power through a series of painful slaps starting off a mono. Then you move out of the roof and finally clip underneath you for the 3rd bolt. I marked this route as 12b as per the original rating but I feel that it might be in the 12c/d range with the broken hold. Fun moves coming out of the cave.

Location [Edit]

Furthest route on right of Kamikaze Cave

Protection [Edit]

5-6 prehanging bolts to open shuts. Bring one draw for the first bolt. If you're projecting this route I recommend hanging at the 2nd bolt and aid-clipping the 3rd bolt just to get those moves dialed as you're looking at a scary fall into the cave wall.


This route is more in the low 5.13 range by my estimates. It's much harder than its 5.12d neighbor. Consensus? Feb 21, 2012

I clipped the first pre-hung draw and then moved right before moving up and into the route. Fall would have been a little impactful, but holds were pretty good. Still really fun and in the 12b/c range I thought. Feb 16, 2015
Still 12b/c move right at first crux Mar 15, 2016

I ripped off a crucial jug around the 3rd/4th bolt off circa 2007, just as the angle lessens. That modification created a new crux, involving a big move to a pocket, where previously there had been a decent rest. It sounds like another hold has broken off closer to the start, just where the roof starts. The route is surely hard 5.12 now, c or maybe even d.

I actually took the broken hold home with me and kept it for a while as a memento. It whacked me right in the chest as I ripped it off. Sep 14, 2016
