Description

Will the holds appear or not?
Steep face climbing on huge holds lead to a nice, ledgy rest. Follow the bolts as you climb up under a little overlap and do the killer mantle that you're sure to remember. Vertical edging on positive holds kicks back to cool climbing through blocks with hidden edges. Finishes at the same belay as Specter.

Location

About 20 feet left of the start of Specter on the steepest part of the wall.

Protection

12? bolts plus chains. Its nice to have a few longer runners. If you come in from the belay on the left (highly recommended as your belayer won't be able to see you otherwise), be sure to have an extra long runner or two. If you come from the belay below Specter, its nice to have a .75 camalot before the first bolt. If you get spooked between the first and second bolt, a #1 camalot is nice. There are some cracks up higher on the route but we didn't like the sounds they made as we hammered around on them.
