Description Suggest change

This is, bar none, one of the best routes at Main Elk. After the initial choss band, the rock on this route is absolutely bullet.

Stick clip the first high bolt and move up and left to the left side of the large blocky nose feature ('Best in Show' climbs up the right side of this block and shares a rest jug at the top). From the top of the block, bust left on crimpy and airy climbing to a powerful crux sequence which eventually gives way to larger holds and the anchor.

Location Suggest change

This route is located about 20 yards left of 'Patchouli', just around the corner. It can be identified by the black bolt hangers and the blocky nose feature described above.

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts; shuts.
