The initial moves are steep and involve pulling up on pockets and a large grainy inclusion. Continue working up and left on large pockets and rounded edges, which become less positive due to the left leaning nature of the route. Above the 3rd bolt the angle decreases, in a slabby section, before the final steep pocketed headwall. Continue up the headwall on pockets and small edges to the chain anchor.


Located on the south side of the Temple of Ishtar. 1st route on the right as you descend the ridge west of The Egg.


7 bolts (glue-ins) & chain anchor.


A little funky here and there, but I like this route. Crux for us was pulling the bulge after the initial steep section. Steep face above the ramp is fun!
