Description

Natural History teaches that when a big cat makes a kill it is often via a powerful, accurate, focused strike to back of the neck, severing the cervical spinal cord. This seems about right for the crux sequence on The Strike.

The Strike begins on the left overhang. Power up to a rail system and swim out right to the arete. The first crux comes in standing up at clip four. Moving past clip five is the technical crux and entails a number of tricky and powerful moves. The crux ends when you stand above clip six. Bolts above guide the rope away from snags on the ledge.

Location

This is the left of three routes on the block.

Protection

Eight draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
