DescriptionThe crux of this route may be keeping your head together. Several fun and exciting moves over well-spaced bolts and the occasional small piece of gear. This route is not for leaders just at the grade or unfamiliar with RP/brass placements.
Up the hill from Mennonite Surf Party at a white-splotched blunt arete. Start on the slab apron with a newly added bolt. Move up the left side of the apron to a couple of gear placements. Make the first series of hard moves over gear to move right towards the bolt above the bulge/roof. The last few moves to the bolt at the bulge/roof can be protected with a tapered brass placement. Clip the bolt and pull the crux. Follow the thin seam up and left for a few feet to the RP/brass placements. Head back up and right to a nice ledge and contemplate how far you will be above that thin gear before you get to the next bolt 15' above. A fall onto the RP/brass placements would be very bad from above. Follow the blunt arete for two more bolts into a water groove type feature just to the left. Get some good TCU's/C3 in a few horizontals on the way up. Make one last tough move before the anchors.
