Description

One of the best routes at PP. Start by jamming and underclinging a roof crack that traverses to the left to gain an arête. Climb the arête on thin and balancy edges past 4 bolts and a horizontal crack to reach the summit.

Location

Start at the top of Name it (5.6) or Hades (10b). Can also rap from the summit with a single 60m.

Protection

A few cams up to #2 Camalot, 4 bolts

Cool route. I took on my onsight attempt, not important, but in retrospect that was a bad idea, I mean taking is always a bad idea... Point being, if I wanted to clean it up, I would have to get back on it. Since doing it, I have no desire to do it again. The routes surrounding Fear of Flying are far better, in my opinion. I didn’t find the crack all that enjoyable and the face climbing was ok. The belay stances are great!
Having provided all of that incredibly critical information, I still highly suggest getting on this route for one reason. The feeling of exposure. You’ll learn fairly quickly how it got it’s name.

You know what, scratch that, this routes great. Do it. You won’t regret it.

And it’s 5 bolts now not 4, but first and last aren’t really needed. 4 days ago
