Description

Face climb up over a few bulges into the main face of the arete, using good positive holds up to the crux right up top. Look around, the hold is there, somewhere.

Pro is 8 bolts. Bring a couple slings for the middle draws as they are around the corner and under bulges.

Location: Right side of the Tomato wall. Left of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Go Cat Go.

Ethan, if you submitted the route I think you can edit it to add that stuff.
Canadian is on the right side of the center buttress that divides Tomato wall from the Far End of Sunshine Wall. It is almost directly above the buttress that has Frank Black at the Millennium Wall. Mar 21, 2014

Fixed the text, and added it to the page info. Does this route need to be moved? if so, where to? Oct 30, 2014

Hi Micah, it just needs to be placed between 10 bucks and a sandwich on the left and Bum Rush on the right. someone added it to Millennium Wall too, but that is wrong.
In case you are OCD like me you may want to organize all of Vantage, many routes not in the left- right plan. Also the " Twin Cracks" area was always known as the Near End of Sunshine Wall. Cheers! Oct 30, 2014

Fun in the beginning and middle. After the 5th bolt it looks like it gets thinner but the holds are better than they look from below. The last bolt to the anchor sucks and here is where I largely disagree on the grade, as it is way harder than 10a. Two different approaches: Go into the left crack and with left hand just barely clip the left chain, then move over on tiny 10+/11- crimpers to get to the right chain. Or go straight up on those crimpers using the right ledge to stand on. 3 stars given for the good flow of climbing to the last bolt, 1 star for the complete change of character and significant grade change at the end.

Beta Spoiler:

At the end of the route you can move across the face with the anchor to the top right corner of that face and clip the anchor. The move isn't that difficult although it's not obvious. I thought this was too easy for 10a, even by Vantage standards. Dec 6, 2018
