Description

On recommended route list in Yoder/Ford guidebook. The placement of this route makes you scratch your head a little. Pull the exact same start as for Violator, clipping shiny new Fixe bolts on your left instead or right. Traverse left to a two handed jug rail between bolts 1 and 2 and head up your own line. Resist the temptation to clip high or you will pump out. The prescription is: big move, clip at the waist, repeat. This is far more difficult than any of the other 10d's on the wall and sustained all the way to the chains. It would be a proud onsight for anyone climbing near the grade.

Location

Squished between Critical Condition (11a) and Violator (10d). 4th bolted route from the right.

Protection

6 bolts to chains

I agree with above assessment, weird bolting, ground fall potential if you don't make the 3rd clip, awkward and harder by 2 grades then Violator. Apr 14, 2015
