Description

A killer route featuring a variety of interesting movement and cool holds. Some of the hardest climbing is right off the deck; move through three bolts of slippery, powerful climbing to a mini ledge rest. From here the climbing style changes character, using a mix of crimps, pockets and the rare jug. The climbing is technical and engaging on bullet stone. Quite solid for the grade.

Location

on the right side of the swamp cave. This route is just right of 'Shelter from the Storm' and just left of 'Heart of Glass'.

Looking for a legendary project to take me into 5.12. Is this really a 4 star route with "slippery" climbing? That seems like an oxymoron. May 24, 2018
