Description

Ascend the thin seam up the bulging face. Stick clip the first bolt. The hardest moves are the start, but it is far from over. Continue up the seam up a short right-facing corner to a horizontal break at a small overlap (5.12a/b). A sidepull slapping redpoint crux leads above 5th bolt to a mantle finish. This climb is sustained and pumpy for its length.

Location

This is located just right of "Old Man & The Sea".

Protection

6 bolts / 2 bolt anchor.

Another fun route at this crag! Better holds than some of the other climbs for sure, but also a bit steeper/pumpier. Sustained climbing from the ground to the chains! Dec 28, 2013

Great climb with great movement and intelligently bolted. So far, my favorite at the crag. Jan 11, 2014

The left anchor bolt could use some Loctite. The nut was quite loose today. The hooks at the top are a nice treat though.

Great climb!! Feb 3, 2014

I think it would be a classic anywhere. Nice, continuous, and without pimping on tiny holds. Mar 9, 2015

What a wonderful route and did this second go with a belay from THE MAN who put it up, Mark Rolofson! I had the rope through the first bolt but used a longish draw on number 3, makes it nice if you're shorter. It was so windy that debris was coming off the top. Next time I go I will for sure bring a helmet if I know there's wind in the forecast. Super psyched, my first time outside in 2016 and my hardest route of the year :) Jan 14, 2016
