I think this route is called "Endurance" (Mike Tupper FA) but I'll let someone with more familiarity with the area confirm this. Sep 10, 2013

Probably be a classic once it gets cleaned properly. Nice mixing of face and crack climbing. Sep 20, 2015
About 1998, Tom Wezwick, Chris Kessler and I placed set of rap hangers at the top of this wall (right of the headwall and left of the tree). We approached from the top so the anchor is quite close to walking terrain. It would appear that the start may be Endurance but then we TRed up and right (above the anchors for the next routes right). The 5.11- rating for our very long pitch seems about correct. I expect our full line would need two shorter pitches today. Oct 15, 2016

Chains have now been added to the anchors, so a rappel is no longer necessary in order to prevent rope twist. However, YOU STILL NEED A 70 METER ROPE, and a knot at the end isn't a bad idea either.
This route is still cleaning up, with a good deal of choss remaining in the crack. This said, the varied character of the climbing and the fantastic crux up top make for a future classic. Apr 10, 2017
