Description

Climb a steep start on good holds with some suspect rock to a balancey step left to a steep crux on good limestone. Above, take advantage of a rest before finishing on the delicate slab to finish.

A long neglected and rarely done climb, this thing is actually quite enjoyable.

Location

About 25 feet right of Continental Breakfast and surrounding routes is a brief opening in the trees where this route climbs steeply from the trail, before you get to the steep mini-cave routes of Plastic Prince and others.

Protection

8 bolts and anchor.

This route climbs much better than it looks. I enjoyed it.

Use some long slings to tie-back some of the tree branches that guard the start. This will allow your belayer to see you better too.

If you get stymied trying to figure out what to do, think "undercling" in unlikely positions. Aug 21, 2015
