Description

This route has multiple cruxes that have enough differences between them to challenge a variety of climbers/styles. Expect thin, bulgy slab climbing with enough smeary footholds to keep you mentally engaged (or perhaps disengaged from the rock).

The difficulties start immediately with the first bulge. Scoping out the route from the scree slope at the base can help a bunch here. The fun continues with the next bulge (crux?) which can be harder to read, along with a series of challenging sections punctuated by decent stances all the way to the anchors.

Location

This route is located between "One Thin Line" and "Red Dawn". Look for a couple of (lightly) featured bulges down low on the route. Head straight up the thinness.

Protection

Fully bolted and in the right places IMO. There is a two-bolt anchor at the top.
