Description

This route deserves more love. The sequences are brilliant. The climbing is difficult and bouldery for the entire length, requiring precision stabs to small pockets and small edges. One of the bolts (4th or 5th) is difficult to clip and I ended up skipping it on redpoint. I think this is one of the better hard (a relative term, I know) routes in AF that is too often overlooked. Go do it!

Location

This is definitely one of the best 13's I've done in AF. The movement is memorable (and brilliant), bouldery, and hard. Every move is tough on its own; it packs a vicious power endurance punch. The position and views are beautiful, and the holds are all unique. Keep going straight up at the last bolt instead of busting way right on to 40 Something for the full package. Routes like these are the reason why you train in Hell. Pedersen had the vision, man. Jun 19, 2017

The really hard to clip bolt was retro bolted- Still hard but a much better placement. Apr 19, 2013
