Description

The moves from the ground up to the second bolt are interesting and the route overhangs a bit. Then the bolts continue straight up the face, but most of the chalk and the holds seem to go far left and then angle back towards the middle again, making the clipping difficult and awkward. After the last bolt the route seems to go straight up the face to a prominent (drilled?) 3 or 4 finger pocket. The final move, a mantle onto the very large ledge at the top feels exposed and is about 10 feet above the last bolt. There's nothing to hold onto on the ledge so it's a pure mantle. Chalk indicates that some people bypass the mantle and just go far left into a broken corner to gain the ledge. Rings on hangers for an anchor at the back of the ledge.

Location

This route starts on the face just a few feet to the left of a big right-facing corner.

Protection

5 bolts. Rap rings at the back of the huge ledge at the top.

its was really far from the 5th bolt to the anchors, which are hard to find. Definitely bring a bail biner Mar 3, 2018

This route is another prime example of a standard Rudaw nightmare. The climbing isn't very fun, is super awkward, and often moves miles from the bolt line. The run out from the last bolt to the anchor is also super unnecessary and nearly impossible to even get into a mantle position if you're short. It's hardly a 10 whatever move...Consensus: don't do this route. It's pure shit. Aug 7, 2018
