DescriptionA good climb that makes you think. The line looks circuitous and confounding from far away, but becomes clear once on the rock.
Start by scrambling up easy terrain in the corner using a 4 inch crack for a first piece. Shuffle left and gain a crack system in the center of the face. Using a little bit of everything to get up this section shuffle left once more until on the arete. Crack's and good holds will bring you up to the belay which as of now is a new SS bolt with a button head just above. Worth a lap just for this one pitch.
Pitch 2 traverses the upper horizontal that seems to defy logic, and make you wonder what they were thinking when they decided to go for that traverse!
LocationAbout 100ft east of Hyperform. The route is the last large dihedral east of the main hyperform wall area.
note the obvious green patina and you've found it.
