This is a very worthy mixed line, though it could use a rebolting job. Start up a lichened, smooth face coming in from the right (uphill) with a few heady moves before the first bolt. There are big moves and weird sequences for the first three bolts. At a pretty good stance, you get some gear in, then bust up a bulge through some cool huecos, more gear, and one more bolt into a REALLY cool crux sequence. At the top, you move right into a shallow dihedral.


Just left of the 5.6 corner "Beech, Beeeech, Beeeeech!" and perpendicularly facing the obvious crack, Surge Complex.


Four bolts, plus bolted anchors. Some supplemental gear is definitely needed; I used a couple .5 camalots and one blue tcu.
