Description

Start up a nice crack in a left facing corner below a large roof. The second edition Watts guide describes this as a pleasant crack that most people climb to the bolt and lower from. The original route continues by traversing left then up through steep blocky terrain.

Beyond the initial traverse, the climbing is 5.8-5.9 up to the blocks, then probably 5.10 or more to finish. There is no 5.7 terrain above the traverse.

Location

The unmistakeable corner with the large roof about 20 feet to the left of Theseus

Protection

A couple of pieces to 2 inches if you're just climbing the crack. If you're going all the way to the top, add a set of wired stoppers.

NOTE: The 5.7 climbing ends at the bolt below the roof. You can lower from here, but you'll be lowering and rapping from a single bolt at some point. There's also a fixed pin above the bolt.

Not sure if anyone's finished the route lately, but the stuff above the little traverse to the left of the roof is way harder than 5.7, even old school 5.7.

The crack is okay, I guess, but nothing you'd want to hike in just to do. It's very short. Sep 9, 2013

Though well protected, the move up around the roof is much harder than a 5.7. Don't lead this route if that is your limit. May 27, 2014

The second roof was way harder than Virgin Slayer but easier than Labyrinth. Sep 2, 2014

At the second roof, go right around the arete. There are hidden face holds that make it easier than finishing left. Aug 4, 2015
