Description [Suggest Change]
Classic multi-pitch sport route on chossy limestone. P1- first two moves are burly then mostly 5.8 to a seated belay in a cave. P2- traverse out right to an exposed 10c move on the roof and on to another seated belay in the shade. P3- sustained 11a climbing with burly moves on good enough holds. Stay left and up. Good exposure. Many aid here (goes 10c on aid) and ladders are sufficient. Rappel and enjoy the view.
Location [Suggest Change]
On Urban Assault Wall. Follow the bolts leading straight up to the cave. Rappel down and hike out.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Normal multi-pitch sport rack. Bring a couple of long slings for the P2 traverse. 60m rope minimum. The route is protected extremely well. Bring a helmet for the initial belay. You WILL send rock down on this route. It is possible to aid P3 with ladders.
