Description

Start in a shallow, right facing dihedral. Boulder to the horizontal, then romp up the easy face above.

A stick clip is MANDATORY for this route- the '5.9' grade is what the book calls this route, but the start is hard 5.10- certainly as hard as Armed Insurrection.

Location

Just left of Armed Insurrection.

Protection

8 bolts

SUPER polished first foothold makes the start a bit dodgy. You'd benefit from a stick clip or a couple super alert spotters until you can put in. Jul 14, 2011

Tough start to an okay upper face. Not the best route on the wall. Definitely a heads up start. Sep 22, 2011

Stick clip highly recommended. 5.10 start to forgettable climbing after the first 25 feet or so. Sep 24, 2011

The start makes this otherwise great route mediocre. Still definitely worth it. Mar 28, 2014

The first 2 moves are easily 5.11, or V3/V4. Bring a little steel brush to scrape the shoe rubber off the first 2 footholds; then stand up on your friends knee/shoulders to reach high for handholds; then you won't be so ticked off at the start. Jun 8, 2015

The first 11 ft is easily a 5.10b/c move. The next 20-30 ft are fun but not classic then it just flys to the anchors. Apr 25, 2017

If 5.9 is your limit you won't be able to climb this route. There are easier 5.12s here. Sep 8, 2017
