The linkup. Some arcane moves in the corner lead to an exciting face before hooking into Naked Nebula.

This route shouldn't be missed imo. More pleasant and sustained than knuckle up if you don't dig that big move. The fixed Petzl draws should be replaced (i'll make that happen next time I'm there). Feb 18, 2015

This route should get done far more often than it does. I have yet to redpoint, but after putting in a few burns on it, I can tell you that it is as good as some of the other classic 13a in the canyon. Definitely jump on it. Easy climbing past three bolts leads to a long fixed draw. Clip this and move left in the dihedral slab thing. Then... suit up. V6ish crux on bad small holds to a big throw to a jug. Then the pump fest starts on good holds spaced far apart. One final crux below the final roof on a vertical section and its jugs for 2 bolts to the chains. Same chains as naked nebula.

Why most people gun for Teardrop as their first 13a when this route is in the same canyon blows my mind. This is classic AF climbing. Definitely a gem. Feb 9, 2018
