DescriptionGo climb this route. Possibly the best 5.10 trad line at Greyrock! Instead of the usual thin-face moves and slab-slithering, this route involves sustained lie-backing, face climbing, and jamming! I also thought this route was really solid (hard) for the grade.
Start up easy ground to gain a thin, finger crack, lieback up to the obvious bulge, work your way left to gain the left-leaning dihedral roof, and follow this to the break midway through (Frightline Roof - 11a - takes the first crack through the roof, and Frightline Direct - 11 -continues through the seem near the end of the dihedral). This shallow crack is the crux and is currenty filled with dirt and vegitation, but good fist/hand jams are still to be had! Crank over the roof and continue up more classy (though more moderate) 5.8 ground above to reach a tree-sling anchor.
Rap to the ground with 2 sixy meter ropes or walk off to the left. Well done.
