Description

This is mostly a slab climb with about 20' of crack about 3/4s of the way up. The route is very sustained at the 10d level. As my partner said, there are sometimes places with foot holds but no handholds or places with handholds but no obvious footholds. The route is quite sustained for its entire length. As it says in the Haas guide, you "claw" your way up.

Location

This route is on the south face of the Taj Mahal to the right of the route "Too Young to Fly". You can rap or lower from the anchors at the top. The route is mainly on a slab until a short crack section up high.

Protection

10 bolts and a rack up to a #0.75 Camalot. There is a bolt anchor at the top. A 70m rope is required for descent.
