Description

Amazing aid line, highly recommend top rope only. As there is no real protection... Starts off with a cam hook, then into an old bolt hanger, then into multiple bat hook placements till the changes. Awesome route to aid practice on.

Location

South side of pinnacle, left of super air.

Protection

Top Rope for starts... unless you just wanna be a bad ass..

The initial crack takes #2 brassie offsets. Reachy for most when going for the first bolt stud. The rest is neck-tying dowels with nut cables and hooking on 1/4" hook holes. The mental crux is after the hangered bolt mid way up to the next dowel for pro (25'). Shorter people will likely make 5 hook moves before reaching the last dowel. Three bolt anchor with chains to lower off or rap. Good practice for the big show...and haul practice too. Pulled up ledges and had an overnight party! Fun and exciting route!

Side note - this route, called 'Where's The Breeze?' was put up in 1997 by Rick Poedeke (see posted photo of the route author doing the FA). The route does continue to the top. Original rating is 5.10 A3. Not being a jerk.....but the route does go clean (brassies, hooks and nut tie-offs). Thus the C rating.... ;) Feb 14, 2012
