Description

This route starts on flaky rock albeit well bolted. A little bit of delicate, four-point movement quickly gets you onto stellar rock. From here, the climbing is exceptional and on edgy, big moves that lead you to the left of the face. Third bolt from the top and the last bolt are the crux. Wild, fun, and zesty! If it weren't for the few moves on poor rock at the bottom, this would be 4 stars for sure!

Location

Between "She Jane" and left of "Swinging from Limbs."

Protection

11 quick draws, and 1 shoulder length runner gets you to the anchor shared with "Swinging from Limbs."

This is a great route and a real pump-fest. Find your rests and be sure to plan several moves in advance while shaking out. As you advance to the shared anchors, you utilize small-yet-positive holds and fight through the 11b crux. Enjoy, this is a great sport route on 95% good rock. Nov 25, 2012
