Description

We waited for Ron, but he never showed up!

Solo up easy rock to first bolt where the rock steepens. Follow the right-facing dihedral. Move at 3rd bolt might be harder for short people. After 4th bolt, follow easy rock (to the left of the bush) and up then right to the anchors for Release the Kraken.

Location

Begin as for Tinnitus, and aim for the right-facing dihedral just right of the Tinnitus line of bolts.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. This uses the same anchor as Release the Kraken.

Fun. Be gentle with the undercling flake near the crux. It's helpful, but if someone yards on it, it's gone. Apr 22, 2015

I did this route again today with a partner, not solo, and it seemed easier. Maybe 10a. Feb 28, 2014

I thought this was true to its 10c rating. I agree with Tony that it is not as hard as some of the Eldo 10cs, but for Boulder Canyon, I think it is rated about right. The crux is really short, but it is a fairly difficult move. Dec 2, 2013

Of the routes on this lower right wall of Bihedral, I enjoyed this the most despite the somewhat chossy rock. It climbed like a trad climb and felt a bit airy. We traversed left to the Tinnitus anchors rather than scrambling way up right to the Release the Kraaken anchors. Jan 16, 2011

Some pretty good climbing in the middle but a little less great up high and down low.
Also, the grade is pretty high considering. It felt 5.9 or maybe 10a. I can't give it 10c for sure, because my benchmarks are Tagger, Grandmother's Challenge, Outer Space, etc.... Apr 23, 2010
