This sustained, technical route will shred your fingers and test your ability to read the complicated beta. After the 7th bolt on Legend of the Fall, go up from the rest, then traverse left on a thin rail into pockets (including a sharp mono). Crank through on the small pockets and edges, until they run out just below the anchor. Bad pockets and razors will take you to the top.


This is the harder variation to Legend of the Fall. Climb Legend... to the 7th bolt, then bust left.


12 bolts + anchors.

Agreed with the description. This route is a bit painful with some sharpness and classic "tendon" tweaky pockets. Agree with some others that this route is solidly difficult. Not much rest or places to get a quick shake and your on your feet a lot on bad smears. Worth the effort if you have done every other 5.12 at Cactus but shouldn't be your first 12c you go after....

Great route. Four stars. Not crowded and really worthy but on the solid side of 12c. Get on it! Feb 17, 2018
