Climb the flake just right of the start of Vision. Follow the crack system all the way to the top of the wall and rappel from a tree or over Kentucky Pinstripe. You can escape left onto Vision in a couple of places.


Just right of Vision. Start from the same ledge.


You need smaller stuff for the start. Take care with placement. This is not a good beginner lead.


This climb has it's own anchors at the top of the wall May 10, 2013

Lower part takes passive protection as well. Dec 5, 2013
Oh man, if I was a 5.7 leader trying this I would pee in my pants. I thought there were a couple thin/unprotected reachy 5.9 moves. 20 feet up. The rest is trivial. Jun 16, 2014

There is no way a leader of this climb would ever rate it 5.7+. Gotta throw the Bulls**t flag on this one. The moves down low are harder than that on top rope. Mix in placing skimpy pro off of thin holds and I'd personally consider a clean lead of this climb somewhere in the low 10s. I'm clearly a wuss and in the minority with this opinion though.

I'm not sure why it's showing up as 7+. I distinctly remember thinking the 5.8 grade the FA gave it (yeah I'm talking about you Scott) was BS Jan 5, 2015
5.9- PG13

No way is this 5.7, although it was slightly damp when I climbed it. A couple hard moves protected by 00 TCU and a wire, with the crux hold also the highest good placement (your choice). Compare this to father and son or vision around the corner. 5.7+ is a pretty severe sandbag, thought it felt much more like 5.9- or 5.9 May 18, 2015

I agree with a 5.8+/5.9 rating. I put it in as 5.7+ because other climbers insisted it was well protected with stoppers (its not) and that it wasn't that hard (it is).

Just because you can put stoppers in a crack doesn't mean they'll hold a fall. Sure, a 00 came will work, but again, that doesn't mean the fall potential so near the ground is minimized.

This is not a beginner lead and just because a beginner might pull it off doesn't change the reality of the climb. Jul 6, 2015

This was a fun climb. I did climb it after dark which would add the R rating!
Small pro in the beginning helps. Bolts at the top for TR. Nov 21, 2016
