The physical crux is pulling off the ground. The mental crux is pulling rotten holds over the roof knowing you will deck. Then there is one more tricky slab move before the anchor with the second bolt well below your feet.

Straight up from this anchor is a lone bolt you could clip on your way to the Head Over Heels anchor. This bolt looked old. If you wanted to continue to the upper anchor, it is probably safer to step right and finish on Head Over Heels, clipping the last bolt on that routeĀ….


This starts on the right side of the ledge on the right side of the South face. An old bolt with an SMC hanger about face height marks the start.


2 bolts and two bolt anchor.

The first bolt on this is very low, and you probably will impact the ledge below if you fall on lead. Dec 16, 2013
