Hard to onsite unless you are amazing, the crux is after the second bolt but it takes some finesse and power to get through it then keep your head to the anchors. Equally as good as Escapade but it gets 1/2 the traffic.


The right branch off of Escapade (aka One Step Beyond).


Bolts, use only the first bolt on escapade if you use the second one you will have some rope drag.

[Hide Comment] pulling over the bulge onto your right heel after the second bolt is waaaay harder than anything on escapade. great route Jan 10, 2012

[Hide Comment] This route is rad! Prob between 11b and c depending on your height, wingspan, and strengths. Several variations of holds and sequences to make the first crux, two completely different styles of doing the second crux that follows (I could only do one, my partner the other). Definitely a fun route to spend some time on. Mar 23, 2013

[Hide Comment] Similar to Escapade, but even better-- continuously challenging and interesting, while being a more singular line. Also significantly harder. How much harder may be a direct function of your reach. Oct 8, 2018
