Fire up the steep face on the right side of the wall. Move, move, and fight the pump.

Clip the first three bolts of Mach 5 and break towards a fourth bolt to the right. Get your one and only mediocre rest then jump for a thin edge. Stick this move and continue up past two more bolts picking a part the last 15 feet. Eat a light lunch, its a very powerful route.

A few big holds, a dead point, plenty of crimps, and a gaston! Hard if you're tall, hard if you're short, its no gimmie.


In the midle of the wall, Speed Trap starts on the first two bolts of Mach 5 and finishes at the right most visible anchor.


Six bolts to an anchor.

The last 15-20 feet feels like 2 V4 moves with some good crimps in between. The Gaston move is hard to balance and taxing. Good clipping stances... fun stuff. Seems like it would be hard for shorter people May 23, 2010
That gaston move is burly for tall people and the tall man beta makes the second problem feel a lot easier than v4. Nice pics Spreadsheet. Aug 11, 2010

Really cool! Easy until the last few moves. Felt like solid .12c to me. Jul 20, 2012
