Description

This is one of the most aesthetic lines in the Amphitheater when viewed from below. Start as for Rough Around the Edges, but where that route breaks off right, continue straight up. There is a #1 BD in a pod by the break before the steep climbing and the bolts begin.

The upper portion of the route is both burly and sequential and offers several hard boulder problems stacked on top of each other sectioned off by adequate shakes. Follow bolts through the stunning obtuse dihedral. If you can...

One can traverse from the Rough Around the Edges anchor to the Pressure Drop anchor via a two bolt traverse.

Location

Middle of the Main Amphitheater. Right of Death and Taxes, and shares start with Rough Around the Edges.

Protection

Single set of TCUs, cams to 2", wires.

Quite tricky to decipher, awesome to send. Great, new-school movement on solid and positive holds. Two distinct boulder cruxes with decent rests before, in between, and after. Oct 27, 2013
