Twist and shout your way up the obvious corner then power out the bulge to finish on easier face to anchors. Excellent moves and body positioning on this one.


The center of three routes on the north face.


8 bolts, anchors


Without the guide book in hand, I thought I was getting on Blockade Runner, so I was pretty stoked to see what I'd done on-sight after getting back to camp. The start of this is no doubt easier than Blockade Runner--still on my list--but the crux bulge will give you a good fight. I went straight over, in line with the bolts. My wife continued up the corner a bit then stepped back left, which may be easier, but I haven't done it. You'll be thrilled to find the no-hands rest at the base of the broad dihedral. A great, great route!
