So named because it wasn't quite a strike. Follow bolts on a blocky arete to a stemming dihedral. Gear for the last 1/3 of the route after leaving the dihedral. Will be a nice moderate once it gets more traffic and cleans up.


On the right side/below the huge Gargoyle roof. Starts off a large boulder adjacent to the wall.


8 bolts, gear to 3", rap anchors. Bring a #5 to protect the last 10' to the anchors, or run it out on easy ground.

Can you try to get a picture on this one soon, if you could please? Looked for it last time and couldn't find the first bolt. Mar 28, 2014

Just put this route up on Sunday 03/23. Wonder what route you're thinking of? Maybe Vegan Tundra? 7-10 Split is super easy to find, it's just around the corner and left of Back Crack. Mar 28, 2014

I guess what I should've said is "looked for a bolt line in this area and couldn't find one"

if i'm envisioning correctly what's written in the description, then i think you bolted what I had been eyeing at my last visit.

can't wait to check this out. Apr 11, 2014

Great route, very enjoyable. The name makes sense for a multitude of reasons, especially as you're doing the splits in the dihedral. As for gear, (stop reading if you don't want to hear) I'd say the #5 is really important to have, at least at the very start of the large crack. Other than that, I placed a .5 and a nest of a few small nuts. I'd be curious what others use. Apr 30, 2017
