Description

Excellent route. Begin 20-25' left of Forearm Furnace, next to the black 3' tall step. Climb up to and around the inverted ramp roof to the left (alternatively, pull the roof directly) (a piece of fixed gear exists on the lip of the overhang at the crux). Climb up and then right to gain the left-facing corner then run to the top where you will find anchors. (Indy)

Protection

Rack of cams. Takes great gear

There are likely several ways to approach the crux area. I started further left and traversed on decent holds over the large pile of green briar with a so-so C3 placed. The bolt feels more like a "yeah, the route goes here" type of piece that isn't really necessary (you can plug a bomber .75 about 8" lower) but it is what it is. Fun moves the rest of the way with great gear. Careful of the loose block a little ways up past the crux...don't think it's coming out soon but it's there. Nov 17, 2014
