Description

This is a variant to Lats that offers a burly, awkward crux. The climb is marred greatly by the spooky flake left of Lats.

Clip the first three bolts of Lats (veering left between the 2nd & 3rd bolts), then mount the enormous flake. Make easy moves off the flake, then pass a tricky crux on insecure, sidepull crimps and the occasional shallow pocket. Above the crux, a few more easier moves leads to the anchor.

Location

Begin up Lats, then veer left to reach the top of the flake. Follow the right bolt line from the top of the flake.

Protection

9 bolts to 2 BA. It shares the first 3 bolts with Lats.

I thought this route was actually super fun and not dangerous. The crux comes three bolts above the flake, and if you blow it, you won't hit the flake. It is burly though and maybe a little bit awkward. Doesn't seem to get a ton of mileage, there was almost no chalk on it. Nov 28, 2014

I agree. No problem with the moves right off the flake...maybe 11 climbing to the clip where you are super safe from hitting. Hard, tricky, and awkward boulder problem. If you like one move wonders...this is for you! Definitely not a classic! Feb 15, 2015

I disagree and certainly think this is a classic route. It's a great rock climb. Not PG-13 by any means either. I'm guessing it's been retrobolted since. Fun, flowy climbing with some cool lock off moves at the crux. Cool route! Jan 28, 2017
