Description

Climb up a broken pillar and clip a bolt. Move past two heads to gain a sloping ledge. A bolt or two leads to a difficult jump to a sloper, or A0. From here, some fun slab climbing trends left into a corner. Some easy terrain leads to an anchor high up.

Location

This is 10 yards right of Optical Illusions. Look for the two heads below the sloping ledge.

Protection

#3, small gear, nuts, and QDs.
Bolted anchor. 70m rope.

After looking through the book, there is a possibility that this is actually the route, "Hairdresser on Fire" labeled as a 5.13? Project. However I have my doubts because a few feet to the left is a line with some smashed hangers and empty holes. The route that exists now goes higher than the book describes and has a few copper heads en-route which was typical of Jim Beyer. The hanger smashing was sometimes typical of him as well. Nov 22, 2013
