Description

Balancy steep face moves to a thin crack (crux), then a 10c crack, followed by 5. 9 climbing up around the flake.

One can continue up the finish to Model Worker, or follow the original aid line (A3) out left for pitch two.

Location

Just left of the Numbah Ten dihedral.

Protection

Stick clip the first bolt, then thin gear to fist-sized cams.

I've not heard of a redpoint of this route in the 21st century. I'd like to think I was wrong. Dec 15, 2013

I gave the bottom of this thing a good scrubbing with a friend, and tried to find a way to get up to the thin crack. It feels mostly there, but one section seems to be devoid of all necessary holds. The guidebook mentions aid hooking breaking the rock here, maybe another piece broke off? Maybe it goes, maybe it does not, who knows. FWIW, the second bolt appears to be brand new, and likely got replaced along with 'Numbah Ten' next door. Nov 25, 2015

Alex Honnold did a repeat of this route on the last weekend of March 2016. He figured out the moves quickly and redpointed second go, demonstrating his impressive ability on techy granite. He (sensibly) stickclipped the high 1st bolt, which means that anyone else planning to do this route can feel completely justified in doing the same. He did not comment on grade/difficulty.

This is almost certainly the first repeat in quite some time, but is it actually just the first repeat. Had the route previously seen a second ascent? Apr 12, 2016

I wish I'd seen that. I played around on some of the holds and it felt just so so hard. Kerwin did some crazy dyno move to a two finger lock at the bottom of the crack. Do you know how Alex did it? Apr 18, 2016
