Description

Thin, but positive moves lead up 7 bolts to a layback. Chain anchor at the top. Bring a blue or yellow sized TCU for the top part unless you want to run it out as the bolts stop a good ways below the anchor.

Location

Bolt line just to the right of Red M&M's

Protection

7 bolts to the anchor. Bring a yellow and/or blue TCU for the upper section unless you feel like running it out

A must do at the grade for Vantage, more interesting then some other jug hauls. could use a couple of aliens for upper crux.

Awesome route. Did without any TCUs, which was a bit scary. The fall would have been quite fun. My favorite thus far at vantage. I would say the crux is around the 3-4 bolts, but getting through the mantle at the stop is though provoking as well. Nov 21, 2014

I used a blue totem after the bolts. This is about the same size as a green alien or a .3 camalot. Feb 13, 2017

Led it onsight yesterday and didn't feel that placing anything above the bolts was absolutely necessary, if anything, cams would have occupied a crucial fingerlock. Although a fall here would be huge-ish, it is clean and the bolts are bomber. I am not saying run it out by any means, but if you feel like gunning it, go for it. Mar 12, 2017

I brought a green alien for the top, and it was too big to get a good placement, something slightly smaller would have been perfect. Feb 26, 2018
