Description

Hop onto the ledge and stretch up to clip the bolt on the overhanging start. Haul yourself over the initial overhang on good horizontals and thin plates, and then start angling out right and up. Keep on truckin' through the continuous top half until you're at the anchors.

This line did feel a bit contrived to me. I had to constantly watch myself to make sure I wasn't climbing straight up into Dyn-o-mite. But if you stay on route, the rock and the moves are nice. A worthwhile endeavor if you're looking for something a step up from Dyn-o-mite.

Location

Starts near the left end of the Great Arch, just to the right of the sport climb Dyn-o-mite.

Protection

10 bolts, anchors

Most climbers find the start rather burly. Very well bolted. Oct 26, 2015
