Description

The left split of the two routes that start with a shared 3 first bolts. Fun crimping on some slightly sharp holds leads to a rest and then a roof encounter on some amazing ergo holds and some crimpy fun to get established on the headwall. Good fun!

Location

3rd from the left. 20 feet right of Freeflying is Neither. Start on the 3 shared bolts with Wall Strike and branch to the left.

Protection

8 Stainless Bolts + Double Mussy Anchor

Great all around climb! Will admit the mini crimper at the crux required some tape on my index finger in order to make the move, but loved it none the less.

WARNING: There is an undercling before the 7th bolt, just before the overhung part, that is very loose. I would be very apprehensive about using it, and if you do make sure the belayer has a helmet on! Could very well cause some serious injury if it breaks off and falls. May 9, 2015
