Description [Suggest Change]
Big, steep pulls lead to a final, desperate, crack in a leaning corner. It was very difficult to protect with stoppers and hexes on the first ascent. We did it after a failed first attempt on the Black Wall's Road Warrior.
Location [Suggest Change]
This is the first route seen on the hike down. This may be the shortest hike from a paved road to a 5.10 at 12,500' anywhere.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Lots of cams, mostly small and finger sized.
