Description

WOW!!! This route is a stunner. Start up easy terrain on sweet horizontals before you pull over onto a slab. Enjoy the warmup because soon enough the holds start shrinking and you are presented with the first of many cruxes. Weave your way up the wall and eventually make hard moves to a dihedral system out left. Savor a few bolts of easy climbing before confronted with a final long cruxy section. This route is super technical and just keeps delivering. Ends on an obvious ledge. If you still want more you can link this into a the finish of Illuminati. The extension requires a 70m rope and adds 20 meters of 12b.

Location

This route goes up the right side of the main wall. Start just to the right of a black streak up some horiztonal breaks.

Protection

18 bolts to a double ring anchor. To descend with one rope you must rappel to the right to the Bio Luminescent anchor. Cleaning the draws below the BL anchor is a pain since they are way off to the side.

Really fun route. Bring some long draws/runners for the traverse left into the dihedral or suffer the consequences up higher. Sep 19, 2014
