Description [Edit]

An enjoyable start on huge pockets leads to a moment or two of balancy indecision, followed by a good rest at an almost-ledge. Continue up past a slight bulge into lighter, more fractured rock. From the seventh bolt trend a bit left towards the last bolt using balance, a key right hand, and faith that holds will be found.

From the last bolt a bit of strenuous trickery is required to reach the chains. The end may be a bit harder if you're shorter.

Location [Edit]

The right-most line on the buttress before you head around the corner and uphill.

Protection [Edit]

8 bolts, chain anchors.

Not so sure about the last six feet of this route. I would love to understand why the anchors are not either a few feet lower, or a couple feet left. Was moving upward from the flake/side/undercling (out left), then traversing to the anchors, the intended route? If so this seemed to create the potential for a severe-ankle twisting swing in a fall.

All cruiser until the last few moves; the last couple bolts to the chains are .11a. Encountered no loose rock. Jun 14, 2015

90% of this route is easier and fun. The final 10% is contrived and no fun. Luckily it can be avoided by finishing on the Our Mrs. Reynolds chains. Aug 24, 2015
