Begin climbing the overhang below two large inclusions, left of the tree. From a pocket, pull or lieback up and onto the inclusions. Continue working up the face on shallow pockets and edges to a hole (3rd bolt) below a large fractured inclusion. Work up and right on shallow pockets and edges to the ridge line. Climb the right edge of the slab past a 5th bolt and a run out to the anchor. It is difficult to clean this route from the anchor due to the leaning nature of the line. Careful of the swing/pendulum. Best to have a 2nd clean.


Located on the east face of Hyperion Slab, in an alcove 40 ft. uphill (north) of "Goldline," left of the tree.


5 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.


Fun, bouldery, first couple moves. clip the third bolt and race to the top! Mar 26, 2012

After the 5th bolt, the route appears to be very runout to the anchors. I traversed over a bit right and clipped a 6th bolt before continuing to the top. Dec 17, 2017
