Description

This is a cool but thuggish new line that took a good bit of cleaning but actually turned out quite well in the end. If the first gear placement freaks you out, just know the it's already been tested...

P-1
Climb up and place a #2 camalot, and a pink tricam (weird vertical V shaped seam) just above. Insecure moves get you to a line of 3 bolts that lead up and around the left side of a roof. Above the bolts the climbing gets technically easier but the pumpy crack stays on you right to the very end. You can get some creative rests in the crack. Lower from 2 bolt anchor.

Location

The middle of a trio of routes. See picture topo.

Protection

medium rack to #2 camalot. Shallow but good #2 camalot and a (slightly higher) pink tricam protect an insecure move to the first bolt.
