Description

This is a vertical face route with small incuts and edges. The lack of pro makes it practically a solo - have you a rope or not. A poor landing would be assured in a fall. The climbing is good and the rock is solid though, so this is a reasonable route for those in the right headspace.

Start on positive incuts, and wander your way up the wall, deviating a move to the side here and there to get the most secure holds. The crux midway up this line is unprotected with a bad fall potential, but the climbing and rock are both solid. Top out and descend to the East and then down a ridge and gully back to the North.

Location

From the top of Right Wall step over the top and slightly south to access the West Face of Supremacy Rock, above the big West Shoulder. The route climbs up the West Face here, wandering slightly to access the best holds on the way up, maintaining a meter or two of space leftward or rightward to either arete.

Protection

Very little protection until near the top when small to medium cams might be placed. The route is X-rated. Best to TR or consider it a solo.
